Verdict

FAMOUS BALLERINA has to be the selection here off a tempting mark. She landed a Thurles handicap off 85 then ran a fine race behind Go Paddy Go off 10lb higher at Clonmel last week. She's now able to compete off a 5lb lower mark and will take all the beating. Might Be Magic hasn't won for almost three years and is very inconsistent though he's really well handicapped if Tom Foley has him ready. Kick Start hasn't had much experience but has run well over longer trips recently and isn't without a chance while Dochas Beag has returned from a very long absence in good form and ready to win soon judged on his run behind The King Of Brega at Thurles.
