Verdict

REGULATION was given a very positive ride when landing a similar handicap over the course and distance last time when Abbey Vale and Line Drummer were beaten though not by far. The latter pair should get closer on the revised terms but the winner may well be good enough to complete the double. Ravello Again hated the heavy ground on his hat-trick attempt at Listowel and is much better than that while Campanology invariably goes well without winning in this kind of race as he did here last time for which he's gone up 3lb. Revolution arrives from France and has her first start for Jimmy Lambe but probably needs softer ground.
