Teoranta has little form to recommend her but begins her handicap career on a lowly mark and looks certain to make progress this season. Maude Adams won twice on ground with some give before ending last season with a victory on Polytrack and Gary Halpin's claim should be a major plus. Daring Man has some strong form to his credit though amazingly he's had 36 runs on Turf without winning. GREATEST made progress in each of his three starts last year and caught the eye on his reappearance in a Dundalk handicap. With that under his belt and Johnny Murtagh on board he can gain his first success. Daigreen completed a double in very moderate handicaps at Ballinrobe in August but is probably too high in the weights now.
