Verdict

The benefit of a recent run may be able to seal this for Willie Mullins' CHAMBORD DU LYS, who showed real promise for a lot of the race at Galway before the 476-day absence took its toll and she faded into fourth late on. She should be much better positioned to finish her race off now and can see off the lightly-raced Commentariolus, who produced two useful runs to kick off life at Cullentra House in the spring, and now reappears for Gordon Elliott. Stablemate Silver Star is another who commands respect.

Verdict

Likely to develop into a match between CHAMBORD DU LYS and Commentariolus. The latter should have more to offer in this sphere but clear preference is for the Mullins mare with her reappearance run under her belt.
