Verdict

DOUBLE SEVEN is going from strength-to-strength and completed a four-timer in a very tough handicap at Limerick. He deserves this step-up in grade and can continue his winning streak though Laganbank will be a major threat. Willie Mullins' charge generally competes at a high level and ran a fine race behind the brilliant Sizing Europe at Gowran last time. Sweeney Tunes finished a close fourth in the Irish National in April and made a successful reappearance after a break last season so has to be considered a threat. Carrig Millie was in very good form in the spring and with just six races under her belt over fences has more to offer.
