Verdict

Another tricky puzzle to solve as most of these struggle to get their head in front. The Fox Tully was only beaten a head over C&D last week but is 6lb higher now while Bobskier was raised 4lb for her length second to Miss Bennett at Naas. CEBUANO was regularly placed in bumpers so it was no surprise that he found 1m too short at Cork last month. Today's extra 2f will be much more to his liking and he can get off the mark now tackling handicap company. Waltzing Cat should have benefited from a recent run and may be the pick of the remainder as Kalacan appears to be going backwards.
