Verdict

Calm Bay won this in 2012 and beat Catwilldo, Above The Law and Dylan Express in the process of landing a double at Navan and Down Royal respectively last month. But he was taking advantage of a much lower Turf rating and will find life tougher off a 13lb higher mark today. MR GOOD GUY makes more appeal as he showed the benefit of Robbie Downey's 7lb allowance when going close at Bellewstown last week and his only win so far came over track and trip. Strategic Heights has done all his winning at this track but he's 6lb higher than when last scoring here and hasn't raced since April.
