Verdict

CAOIMHE'S DELIGHT will never get a better chance to break her duck over the larger obstacles. Her latest third behind Byerley Babe in a Grade 2 over 2m4f here is a cut above anything achieved by her rivals and there is no reason why she won't see out the extra. Carrigeen Lonicera and Backinthere are safely held on the form book while Liz's D'Estruval has a bit to prove having fallen at Clonmel and Fairyhouse in her last two starts. Sugar Bullet has had a few chances and may be getting a bit long in the tooth now for chasing.
