Verdict

Mini Budget has run his last three races over 2m4f on this track, each time finding little from before the last. Today's trip should prove ideal and he should get into the mix. DOC HOLLYWOOD hasn't had much racing and is improving at a rate of knots. He attracted support on his latest start at Thurles and had a bit to spare over the well handicapped Speed Dial so this should prove within his capabilities despite a 6lb rise. Blazing Sonnet, who was less than 3l behind, is 4lb better off and should get closer without reversing the form. Tipped Up Harry won a handicap at Wexford in July on soft ground and could have found the going a little too quick on a return visit last month though he's also 8lb higher in the weights.
