More than half of the field make their handicap debuts including top-weight Joe Eile, who has been in fine form to date and may not have been suited by Polytrack last time. Harrison's Cave hasn't been getting home over a mile so today's trip should prove ideal and his rider's claim is a bonus. Just On Fire has been making steady rather than spectacular progress and should continue to improve enough to get involved though he is held by EQUUS FERUS on their placed efforts behind the latter's stablemate Ancient Sands at Down Royal last time and Joanna Morgan's colt can take this despite a rather harsh 5lbs rise. Proper Madam dropped to the minimum trip to get off the mark in a Bellewstown nursery but wasn't beaten far over today's distance previously.
