Verdict

This is a very low grade handicap where the majority are out of form so the market may provide some clues. SARAH BATTLE started favourite at Limerick last week but just found 3m taxing her stamina. Her earlier close second in a big field at Punchestown would be good enough and she gets the nod. Bennys Girl was only just behind her in that latter event but also failed to stay at Limerick so looks the main threat. Robert Tyner's horses have been in such good form that Shantou Shine may be capable of better than she's shown so far while Prince Of Milan, who alternates between hurdles and fences, can't get much lower in the ratings as he's 24lb lower than over the bigger obstacles.
