A low grade handicap in which Asia To Cuba must be considered after a decent run at Bangor. Baby's Hot found three miles taxing her stamina here last time after scoring over 2m4f at Listowel. She's definitely on the short-list but SUBSTITUTE finished runner-up from the same mark in this a year ago and it's about time John Carr's charge was gaining an elusive first success and this looks a good opportunity. Tory Hill Lad won over three miles here last month but has been beaten a distance in both subsequent starts but St Killian's Run reverts to hurdling on a 22lb lower mark than over fences and his trainer will believe he's well handicapped here.
