Several of these are reappearing after strong runs last week including PAGE TURNER, who was very impressive when landing a beginners' event at Limerick. He hasn't been done too many favours for his handicap debut but looks capable of conceding weight all round. Playing also scored at Limerick and has to be a threat though an 11lb rise looks a bit steep considering his age. Pals Leg had made a winning debut over fences at Tramore before reverting to hurdles and running reasonably well so he's another with a chance along with Hillman, who doesn't have too many miles on the clock for his age and was in tremendous form in the spring. The latter will love the testing ground and has to be considered with his lowly weight. The veteran Osana will enjoy the ground and takes a drop in class so wouldn't be a shock winner.
