AKASAKA couldn't quite get to Copper Dock on his handicap debut over 7f here and, as the extra furlong will be in his favour, he can go one better. All three of Casela Park's victories have been at Dundalk and he looks high in the weights on turf but Inwood, who invariably runs well here, will have benefited greatly from his reappearance in May and is no forlorn hope. Adam's Return is still a maiden after a dozen starts and is by no means consistent though he holds An Saighdiur and Lord Kenmare on their run at Naas a couple of weeks ago. Lily's Star is running well enough to make her presence felt while the veteran Fandango Boy is the first runner saddled by ex-Charlie Swan assistant Philip Byrne.
