Verdict

This looks very tricky but the presence of MARK ME UP at the bottom of the handicap with a 5lb claimer on board may just be enough to swing things his way after a very good run behind On My Own over 2m here last month. Point The Toes probably just needed the run on his reappearance and the ground is in his favour while the lightly-raced Sir Harry Cash is another lightweight with possibilities after staying on nicely behind Immediate Response at Limerick. Peccatorum created a shock when scoring easily at Limerick and has won on fast going while Sheer Genius is running very well at present and has to be considered. Shamiran doesn't win often but was having his first start for a year when an excellent second to Up For The Match at Naas and a repeat would certainly see him in the frame.
