Street Party gained his first success over this track and trip last month but didn't run anywhere near as well a fortnight ago. He just holds Stynes on that victory run though the latter did well to get so close to Goal on his latest start. Authorative beat Street Party a short-head at Clonmel in September but has finished last in three subsequent runs, two of them over hurdles. PAPABILI is progressing nicely and looks the one to be on as he makes his handicap debut after a decent effort behind Shes No Joke here. Senyuman is still looking a few pounds high and Ghost Of A Girl has yet to prove she stays this far.
