Verdict

Srucahan carries a penalty for his victory on heavy ground at the Curragh on Tuesday but has scored from a higher mark in the past and is right back in form. Kanes Pass had gone into that race in good heart but ran very poorly and the run is best ignored. Big Bad Billy Bob has only raced over this trip once in 23 starts and may find it on the short side while Jeangeorges is still looking high in the weights. Love Is The Key went up a massive 10lb for her victory at Fairyhouse but ran well for a long way when attempting an extra furlong at Roscommon. She should be in the mix though it's JACKEMIL who is handed the vote as she landed a Listowel handicap on heavy going over this trip before a fine effort over a mile at Gowran where she didn't get the best of runs.
