The veteran Toufan Express had a chance in the 6.35 here last night and is on a fair mark nowadays. Font Of Wisdom landed a maiden here a year ago but has hardly beaten a horse home in four starts this year and can hardly be recommended though he is, of course, trained by Dermot Weld. The assessor looks as though he's got to Happy Anniversary after her moderate effort at Leopardstown though she still holds Cnocan Diva on their run there earlier. Snap Alam has returned to her best and though now on her highest mark it will be a surprise if she's not in the mix, but Sadler's Mark is 14lb higher than for his latest success though blinkers may help. MAUNDY MONEY was racing off a mark of 87 when beaten at the meeting a year ago and is now down to 71. He's looked on the way back on his two latest starts and is handed the vote to return to winning ways.
