Verdict

A moderate handicap which affords BADGER DALY a good chance to get off the mark on Turf. He reappeared with a fine effort behind Vasoni at Limerick and with Shane Grey able to claim 5lb he looks very well in. Confident Club lost his maiden tag on soft ground at Naas last week and a 5lb rise shouldn't prevent another big effort but Hangar Five needs further and returns after a long break. Knights Templar has won over the course and distance and has a definite chance if fit enough after a break while Hurricane Sky had a run over timber last month that should have put him straight and he should be winning soon.
