Verdict

STORMY AIR is turned out under a penalty after scoring over this trip at Cork last time and rates the one to beat in his hat-trick bid. Hatton Cross kept on well into second over 6f at Fairyhouse last time and promises to be suited by this additional furlong as he bids to overcome a 2lb rise. The pick of the remainder may be Footstepsintime, who is rated only 2lb higher than when striking at Cork in May and returned to form with a solid 6f third at Hamilton latest.

Verdict

MAYSONETTE is a long-standing maiden but she caught the eye back from a break at Cork 12 days ago and could be worth chancing off a career-low mark. Stormy Air and Aunt Audrey head the dangers.
