Dynamite Dixie is trained by Jim Bolger but it's the consistent Focussed, who is owned by his wife, who looks to have the better chance. The former finished a long way behind No Dominion on soft ground at the Curragh but Andy Oliver's charge has been raised a harsh looking 10lb. Beau Satchel, who finished sixth that day on his attempt at a four-timer, now looks high enough in the weights. Hasanour is up 7lb for a hard fought victory at Galway so it's the lightly-weighted CASH OR CASUALTY, who has dropped down the ratings and ran his best race for a long time at Dundalk on Sunday, who gets the verdict.
