Verdict

King Malik continues to frustrate in maidens and has climbed the weights without winning. Thewesthowaya hasn't proved he stays this far and Dream Champion is still looking a few pounds high. The veteran Aviatore showed his liking for good ground at Downpatrick but a 9lb rise looks harsh so CHERRYANTOR is handed the vote. He was having just his seventh start when storming away with a Roscommon handicap earlier this month and though raised 8lb David Splaine's claim is a major bonus and he can follow-up. Misty Weather landed a maiden over this trip at Wexford when the ground was very fast and, as her recent starts have been on much softer going, she can bounce back with conditions in her favour. Kilnafrehanstar, runner-up when tackling this trip for the first time at Listowel, is another to consider.
