Campbonnais and those below are out of the handicap and this looks tough for them. TRANQUIL SEA had his first start in a handicap for a very long time at Punchestown last month and ran very well behind Foildubh. This is a lower grade contest and from the same mark he should be capable of conceding weight all round. Sebadee has generally competed at a high level and has been handed a chance by the assessor but Gala Dancer ran a shocker on his return to action at Punchestown last week after beating Your Busy for the second time when last seen in the summer. Ordinary Man couldn't cope with Grade 1 company at the Punchestown Festival but earlier form in novice company puts him in the frame while Original Option jumped so poorly at Navan last time that a watching brief is advised.
