BOUNCING BETTY won a course and distance handicap before finding 2m4f too short at Sligo where the ground was too soft. This isn't the toughest of handicaps and she can go in again. Hello Louie has been threatening to win a race, though he's still a maiden after 17 starts Presenting Kate looks more of a threat as she won on very fast ground here in the summer though she hasn't done as well subsequently. This looks a race where market watchers will have an edge and it's possible Native Court could come in for support as he produced his best run over hurdles here in August.
