Verdict

Thats A Fret won this a year ago and though he's been badly out of form recently is 6lb lower than when scoring again over the C&D in September. Compelling landed a maiden over 7f at Limerick before leading for most of the way over that trip at Roscommon so she's likely to be suited by this sprint. The maiden Call This Cat was staying on over 5f at Tipperary last time and looks certain to be winning soon, a remark that also applies to Erins Gal, though she's yet to finish in the first three in eight starts. Fleet Captain showed good pace on his reappearance on Sunday and will have come on for the run but both An Saighdiur and Olfa have been racing over a mile and may lack the pace for this. Seamie Heffernan rode LALDIE when Sarah Dawson's charge was noted making good headway over 5f here last month and the lightly-raced four-year-old can take this at a fair price.
