Verdict

REBEL FITZ had Mississippi River and Letter Of Credit behind when both were receiving lumps of weight in a Galway bumper last October and, as he's done very well over timber subsequently, he should see off that pair here. Bleakfield Lady didn't enjoy fast going at Downpatrick last time and has performed much better on ground with some give but Sixteen Forty Two acts on any going and produced another sound run in a Tramore handicap last time.
