Verdict

Handicaps don't come much tougher to unravel than this. South South West had a head to spare over STUCCODOR at Galway on Friday but the runner-up is expected to reverse the form and take this as he was having just his fourth career start. Xsquared is going well and his recent defeat by Waltzing Cat could be boosted when the winners contests the previous race. Maude Adams is making very good progress though she takes a big step-up in distance after scoring over 7f at Galway last week. Valbucca is still a maiden after 14 starts but has gone close on several occasions and arrives on a fair mark. Rasputin was staying on strongly over a mile at Wexford and with Johnny Murtagh back on board is expected to get into the mix.
