Verdict

PEDISNAP ran creditably in defeat on turf at Limerick last time and is expected to do better back on Polytrack off 1lb lower. A draw in stall 10 is a slight negative, but the four-year-old looks open to more improvement than the likes of Beau Satchel, who might be using this to prepare for a tilt at Galway later in the month. Shelbe should go well with the champion jockey on board, while Nisior Donn looks to be going the right way for Gavin Cromwell.

Verdict

SHELBE has dropped below her last winning mark and shaped much better than of late when third at Down Royal last month. She gets the vote in an open-looking handicap. Pedisnap and Tynamite head the list of dangers.
