Maundy Money completed a hat-trick last summer but was raised a massive 12lb after his latest victory and couldn't cope. CANARY ROW ran a fine race on his reappearance in the Irish Lincoln and in that kind of form will take some stopping. Srucahan reappeared with a very good run behind Great Minds on testing ground at the Curragh and is just 2lb higher so should be thereabouts as should Sun On The Run, who was making his handicap debut that day and will be better for the experience. Flic Flac wasn't in the best of form when last seen in the summer but reappeared with a very encouraging second place behind the well handicapped Sophisticated Heir.
