Verdict

Several of these contested a recent C&D handicap in which Blue Peak beat Breezy Zoff and Kinda Tiny. A highly creditable fifth in that race was MERISI DIAMOND, who fared much the best of those drawn low and the unexposed 4yo could prove a bit of value here drawn on the more favourable opposite side of the track. Lisamaria appeared to hit the front too soon at Gowran and didn’t get home but back in trip could prove a major threat from a good draw, while Sunday’s Leopardstown winner Yuzu is respected too. [Alan Hewison]
