Patrickswell has been in fine form but is now 13lb higher than his latest success though he just holds Ucanchoose on their latest run behind Lily's Star at Naas when South Ring and Doonard Prince were behind though the latter created a surprise when scoring at Naas yesterday. Almadaa has won four times on Polytrack but never in 21 starts on Turf and doesn't appear to enjoy soft ground. JEANGEORGES returned from racing at Dundalk over the winter with a fine effort at Tipperary where he was only caught in the closing stages over that 7f after leading at this trip. He's not a regular winner but looks well treated these days and is handed the vote.
