Ridayef took a long time to find his form but was going well when last seen in late autumn, scoring here and coming close to defying a 10lb rise. He has a long absence to overcome as does Gabh Mo Leithsceal, who was around 4l behind him in September but must go close if fit enough as he's 12lb better off. Waterloo Sunrise as no such fitness problems having won here in January though his two subsequent efforts have been disappointing. BLUE RIDGE LANE won here last month and was possibly unlucky a fortnight ago when failing to obtain a clear run. He just sneaks into the 0-65 handicap and Gary Carroll can steer him home. Silenceofthewind ran his best race on the Polytrack last time but he's never raced beyond a mile in 19 career starts.
