Verdict

CASBAH ROCK has won twice recently so it's no surprise to find him 8lb higher than for his latest success which came over 1m2f at the Curragh. Ger Lyons puts a claimer on board and the move can pay off, especially as Keep It Cool was a very fortunate winner over Cry For The Moon here last time and is closely matched with Regresa A Mi on that form. Clare Glen likes soft ground and has yet to be placed in five starts on Polytrack while prolific winner Erinjay has never raced beyond 1m2f and has been scoring in plating company in the UK.
