Core Element scored over the course and distance last month but couldn't cope with an extra 5lb and another furlong a fortnight ago though he led for a long way. Khyber Pass hasn't had much racing and appeared to find some improvement here last week though it wasn't much of a race and the assessor has left him on the same mark. Cash Or Casualty rarely runs over a trip this short nowadays but made all over a mile last time and should have enough pace to hold off most of the the opposition here but OTTO THE GREAT could have his measure. A winner at Newmarket for Peter Chapple-Hyam in August, he was having his first start for new connections when staying on late over 6f last month and with that under his belt can gain his first success in Ireland. Rigid Rock is better known as a sprinter but must be considered from his lowly spot in the weights.
