Just three face the starter and, in these conditions, any of the trio could be successful. Verbal Honesty made a winning debut at Dundalk and though that wasn't much of a race she will have come on for the experience and there's no reason why she shouldn't be as good on turf. Dylanburu had only three opponents to beat at Dundalk but it was still a strong race and he'd made a promising debut on ground with some give when a close fourth behind Dawn Approach at the Curragh. However, CANARY ROW was in front of him that day and, as there's no apparent reason for a form reversal and he's 5lb better off, he gets the vote.
