The commentator will love Wagadoogoochoochoo, who unfortunately for him is likely to get involved though he didn't appear to quite last out this trip last month after his victory over a mile at Gowran. HELLO HUMPFREY gained his first career success over the course and distance last time where he won convincingly. He's been raised 10lb but the in-form claimer Robbie Downey rides and a follow-up looks on the cards. Hilary has been staying on strongly over a mile but she ran over this sort of trip earlier without much success and is still a maiden. Grandma Dotty could prove a threat as she scored over 1m4f at Roscommon last September and was having just her third subsequent run when a close fourth to Home Secretary here earlier this month.
