Verdict

Breezed Well is 11lbs higher than when scoring over this trip at Navan but should still get competitive in this grade as he is much better than he showed when tackling an extra quarter-mile at Down Royal last time. PHILOSOPHERS GUEST was getting off the mark at the 15th attempt when successful over an extra furlong at Ballinrobe. He won very easily on that occasion and a follow-up looks on the cards in this lowly handicap. Polly Ella is still a maiden after a dozen starts but looked ready to win soon when a very good third behind Coolagad Wonder at Limerick. Giant Slalom hasn't won for a while but generally competes at a higher level and shouldn't be dismissed
