Verdict

A tricky start with most of these having shown potential over fences including Noras Fancy, a Listed winner over hurdles, though she disappointed behind today's rival Moncherie at Tramore a couple of weeks ago. The winner was gaining her first success over the bigger obstacles on her tenth start and will make a bold bid to make all here. Our Girl Lucy also led for most of the way when scoring at Tramore though that was over 2m6f and this looks on the short side. Odonimee couldn't handle the step-up to Grade 3 company after completing a double in the spring but that was no disgrace and her form looks strong enough to put her in the frame though OUR VICTORIA will take some beating. Colin Bowe's mare dropped back to 2m4f at Navan last time and produced easily her best performance to date and with so many front-runners in the field her stamina should come into play.
