Verdict

The forecast for heavy rain casts a shadow over some of these, notably recent course winner Partisan Hero who bypassed Galway earlier this week after it got wet. NEW HILL is looking hard to win with but it was a decent effort three days ago and she won’t mind deteriorating conditions. The same is true of Fools Glory and Stormy Jenn, who can both run well.[Alistair Jones]
