Popaflora has had a break since a fortunate victory at Tipperary in May and could find this on the short side. PAT GARRETT has had his jumping problems and wasn't entirely fluent at Downpatrick last week but came home with his head in his chest and looks one to follow now he has a chase victory under his belt. Georgie often goes well here and is just 3lb higher than when successful last August but Down Under could just need the run after a break and is 7lb higher than his only victory.
