Verdict

MUSICAL JEWEL has been given the chance to build on her Sligo victory last time, having only been handed a 2lb rise for that neck success over Stamp Of Authority, who is a course and distance winner, and reopposes here. The Bittern Cry showed improvement when dropped to this distance at Roscommon last time and is another to note, while Solomons Seal and Althib are others who appeal as place prospects.

Verdict

MUSICAL JEWEL took advantage of a further drop in the weights to finally get off the mark at Sligo in June and looks capable of defying a 2 lb rise. Solomons Seal and The Bittern Cry head the dangers.
