At The Races Verdict

Course winner Fairyhill Run is one of two in here for John Ryan, and she looks the stable select under Sean O'Keeffe. With the prospect of more to come, the only one without a published rating, PRESENTING MEGHAN, gets the nod. A mare in form like Arthur's Baby is obviously feared, but Presenting Meghan, on start four over flights, may well improve for the extra distance she goes here. It all came together nicely for the Galway bumper scorer at Down Royal last time. Winning rider Jonathan Moore was complimentary about the selection's attitude on that occasion. The Wexford jockey is out injured at the minute, and as was the case with high profile stable companion Darver Star at Punchestown on Tuesday, Keith Donoghue is an able deputy.

Timeform Verdict

There should be more to come from PRESENTING MEGHAN over this sort of trip so she may be capable of adding to her Down Royal success. Arthur's Baby rates a danger on the back of her Listowel success for in-form Mark McNiff, while The Sliding Rock is also respected for the Gordon Elliott team.
