Verdict

Victor's Beach likes it around here and scored over the track and trip last week for which he's been raised 6lb. Toufan Express won a claimer on the beach at Laytown a month ago and has performed well on both subsequent starts. Moonbi Creek ran poorly when tried over 1m2f at Clonmel but his only success to date came on this track. Doc Holliday hasn't had much experience and couldn't quite get to The Black Devil here last time but is on the upgrade. LAKE GEORGE has his regular partner on board and is back on the same mark as when last successful a year ago. He looked ready to strike again when runner-up at the Curragh last time and can defy his big weight. Midfield General is still a maiden but running well enough to be considered.
