Verdict

The lightly-raced five-year-old DYNAMITE DIXIE arrives on the back of a win at Limerick. A runner-up off today's mark at the same track earlier, Jim Bolger's charge can go in again. Gowran winner Odisseia returns to action off a 6lb higher mark while recent Dundalk winner Cheers Buddy has been raised the same amount. Kavaco and Balmont Belle have both been beaten since scoring on the Polytrack and Woodsophiesmile makes more appeal than Alvar dropping back down in trip.
