Verdict

SHAKE THE BUCKET got his nose in front last time over course and distance and looks sure to play a leading part here once again from just 1lb higher in the ratings. High Kicker is a must for the shortlist and enjoyed this track and trip when second here last time, while the same sentiments apply to Mandarin Monarch who heads the handicap here. Circling Moon and Jim Bolger's Sin Sin are others who need consideration.

Verdict

SIN SIN has been placed 3 times in maiden company and an opening handicap handicap mark in the high 50s could well underestimate her, certainly if she can reproduce anything like the form she showed when third at Fairyhouse last month. Recent C&D seconds High Kicker, Mandarin Monarch and Tenth Amendment (who has also finished runner-up over hurdles recently) head the dangers.
