Verdict

Ted Walsh is attempting to strike while the iron is hot with Toberton, who landed a poor claimer a week ago. Luke Dempsey shone on him that night and again takes the ride with his 7lb claim a big help. HAVE A NICE DAY was making his handicap debut when gaining an impressive success a fortnight ago. He's been raised 7lb which seems fair enough and Gary Halpin's claim ensures he remains well enough handicapped to complete the double. Johnny Murtagh returns to the fold specifically to ride Dansili Dual, a winner at Windsor for Richard Hannon last June. His mount doesn't look badly treated despite a big weight and expect a bold show. Desiderata was behind the selection last time and though better off at the weights isn't as progressive while Relay, who also ran in that race, couldn't find the necessary pace after leading for most of the way.
