Verdict

Peggy's Leg is reasonably treated in this low-grade event despite a big weight and won't mind the conditions. BENALEX PARK is ideally suited by plenty of give and though he hasn't been going so well over hurdles his form on the Flat entitles him to respect and he gets the nod. Hoppsan has only won on Polytrack but is better than her latest run suggests and has to be considered along with Ere Yesterday, who ran easily her best race to date at Sligo last time. Liberty To Rock has one victory to his credit in 34 starts on Turf and that was over this course and distance from a higher mark.
