Like Magic hasn't been seen since runner-up in a Laytown claimer in early September and is 0-13 on the all-weather. LONGFIELD LAD has a lot of weight for a three-year-old but has won from a higher mark on this track and looks the one to be on. Captains Dilemma ran well at the Curragh when last seen a couple of months ago but Denbigh Raur, though running well on Turf last time, has never gone well here in the past. Missile Command is still a maiden but looks best of the remainder.
