CAPITOL HILL has been making steady progress and probably came up against a well handicapped rival when beaten by Granny On Fire at Bellewstown. He was well clear of the remainder, who included Las Encinas, and can get off the mark here. Longfield Lad has been well beaten when tackling this trip in the past and his only success came over 6f while Brady's Hill ran poorly last time and has never faced ground this fast.
