Winning Show has the beating of Yes Minister on form shown when successful over course and distance last month but an 8lb rise for that win looks on the stiff side so Chris Gordon's gelding may have to settle for minor honours. Gary Moore's runners here always warrant respect and She Is A Cracker is no exception being dropped in trip and in the handicap ahead of her reappearance. Hawk Gold could be of interest having been given a chance by the handicapper but it may be worth siding with O'CALLAGHAN STRAND. Jonjo O'Neill's gelding has been well held in three outings so far but may have been let in lightly off mark of just 85 and he looks worth backing with the very useful Richie McLernon able to claim 3lb as he is riding for his own stable.
