Verdict

Aru Cha Cha has been very unfortunate not to have won in the past and goes well on this track. He's been narrowly beaten in handicaps on several occasions and looks certain to get into the action. INTISAAB made a belated debut at Naas a month ago and though not getting involved behind much better fancied rivals he stayed on late over that 6f so tonight's trip will prove ideal and he gets the nod. Belts And Braces didn't quite last home over a mile at Dundalk after staying on over 6f at Fairyhouse so she's another who should be ideally suited to the trip. Texas Rock produced his best effort on soft ground at the Curragh so any rain would greatly improve his chances and he would be a threat.
