Verdict

I'M SERIOUS has hit the crossbar on multiple occasions so far in 2018 and he has been found an ideal opportunity to earn his first victory this evening. Ejayteekay won at Down Royal two starts ago and her effort at the same venue last time out was too bad to be true. Slainte And Thanks is another who may bounce back from a moderate effort last time out and take a hand in the finish.

Verdict

EJAYTEEKAY is worth another chance to confirm the impression she created when winning at Down Royal in May having not been seen to best effect there next time. Slainte And Thanks and I'm Serious are others to consider.
