BLEEDING HEARTS didn't appear to enjoy the heavy ground when beaten a long way into third at Galway and these conditions will be more to his liking. He is handed the vote as though Tommy Stack has reached for the blinkers for Captain Moonlite he was a long way behind the selection at Galway, though did run better at Sligo next time. Tom Dooley ran a fine race when just touched off by Focussed at Galway but disappointed behind the same horse at Sligo when Captain Moonlite finished in front of him. The remainder with experience will all need massive improvement to get involved.
