Verdict

The pair with a recent run under their belts have the advantage here and ELEGANT PEACE can complete a quick double. She reappeared with such an impressive victory on testing ground at Cork that the assessor has raised her an incredible 17lb but Leigh Roche's claim will help and she can defy the extra. John Constable is a big threat as he was carrying a huge weight when just failing to catch Urban Moon at Navan, though he looked as though a longer trip than this would suit. Zarib gradually improved in his first campaign and ended with a victory at Dundalk where he stayed on strongly over that mile. Muileata hasn't shown much to date but begins her second season on a lowly mark and with her stable still in top form her chances shouldn't be dismissed. Aussie Valentine should have a good season as he won a Dundalk maiden in October in impressive style and his stable have been going very well.
