He Is Top Class had shown ability without quite getting there before dropping to the minimum trip and scoring at Roscommon. He's only been raised 4lb so should go well again. BARNEY KING once looked a fair prospect but had a very long lay-off before returning to action in March. He gained a shock victory here last month when Boherna Lady finished third but still appears to be on a very fair mark and looks the one to be on, especially with David Hickey again able to use his claim. Supreme Vic is inconsistent but only 5lb higher than his victory here in April and his rider can claim 7lb while Forget And Forgive has joined Dessie Hughes from the UK and starts off on a very lowly mark. Glasson Lad has now had 26 starts without winning and track winner Dunroe Boy arrives in poor form.
