Verdict

ANOTHER CHALLENGE has been raised 10lb for his recent victory over today's rival Tin Town Boy at Navan but he was always travelling like the winner and now he's struck form will be difficult to beat. The runner-up must have a fair chance of reversing the form at the revised weights but Mister First is now 10lb higher than his last success a year ago despite failing to score subsequently. Not For Burning is going well and would probably have won on her latest visit to this track if she'd been racing over this trip as she was only headed on the run-in. Day Dream Boy only has a 4lb penalty for Saturday's Limerick victory and has to be a threat in that kind of form.
