Verdict

This looks more competitive than the first division with several of the entries in good form. They include Mountain Lough, who battled on strongly to score at Wexford and is very well handicapped compared to his chase mark. He has to be on the short-list along with Clonleney, who was making his handicap debut when a fine second to Revolutionary Road over the course and distance last month when Pumped Up Kicks was behind. Presenting Kate gained her first ever victory at Downpatrick and won't be easily shrugged off from just 4lb higher but the vote goes to DEDOCTORSDAUGHTER. She hasn't had much experience but caught the eye in no uncertain terms at Roscommon last time and hails from a yard going very well.
