Verdict

A poor quality event that won't take much winning and SECRET HERO looks the stand-out choice. Adrian McGuinness charge was well supported to land a similar handicap at Bellewstown last week and did so with the minimum of fuss. The handicapper has raised him 9lb for that but he can run with a 5lb penalty here so looks well in. Sacre Fleur has gone off the boil but tonight's quicker ground should aid her cause and she can get involved but Lombrici, who has performed from 5f to 1m4f in recent starts, is still a maiden and will be having her 15th run. Headache has won four times on Polytrack but has yet to score on turf and looks high in the weights.
