Verdict

Benbecula and Qasser ran in a Curragh handicap last month when the former came out on top. He's since been beaten at Roscommon but this is a moderate contest and, now with Johnny Murtagh, he'll be fancied to gain the second success of his career. However, LADY IMOLA scored over the course and distance on fast ground a year ago and, as she hasn't had those conditions in her recent runs, can return to winning ways. Auden won a Newmarket maiden in 2010 but has hardly picked his feet up in two recent races but Traveller's Tales had some decent form for Richard Hannon and should be ready for this after two runs on Polytrack at Dundalk.
