Verdict

FAMOUS BALLERINA had been threatening to score over hurdles before she got off the mark at Thurles last week. She has a 6lb penalty to carry but looks progressive and can defy the extra. Go Paddy Go is turned out quickly after his close second at Limerick on Sunday and though that was over 2m3f the drop in trip shouldn't be a problem. Sir Harry Cash is tried in blinkers but looks a bit high in the weights and a bigger threat could emerge from Sea Light, who hasn't shown much in maidens but makes his handicap debut over this longer trip and could show improvement, especially if the market speaks in his favour.
