Verdict

Fiery Oscar is very versatile and scored over the minimum trip at Thurles last week though he's equally adept over today's distance. Lisrose produced a shock when beating Caoimhe's Delight at Thurles but couldn't repeat the process when finishing a long way behind the same horse at Limerick. Blissful Moment had been threatening to win before doing so at Down Royal then started favourite for a much better race at Navan where he never got going. He's better than that while Lord Alfie has been running poorly since a surprise victory at Fairyhouse a year ago. SHERIKA scored over 3m at Limerick then just failed to hold off Swiftmarc over half-a-mile shorter at Clonmel last week. She's up another 5lb but Kevin Sexton's claim takes care of that and she can go one better.
