Carr Hall just got the better of Iguacu and Abigails Angel, who both run in the previous race on today's card, over C&D a week ago. But he was all out to get his head in front and may struggle under today's penalty. PETOMIC won at Wolverhampton last month and finished a creditable third in a better race at the same track last time. He's fancied to return to winning ways back in this grade and confirm superiority with Animator in the process. Duneen Dream beat Sligo All Star last month and has ran well again since, while there should be more to come from Hecton Lad.
