LUDDSDENENE is still 7lb higher than when successful at Thurles in January but Shane Shortall's claim takes care of that and he was second over course and distance earlier. Philip Rothwell's nine-year-old is given another chance back in the right grade. Shanroe Society's is another who will be helped by a conditional's claim and he's seen action recently which is more than you can say about the likes of Carpet Elegance, Whisky Galore and Blaze Of Fire. Inarticulate looks harshly treated on what he's shown so far.
