Verdict

Damian English believes RED AVENGER (NAP) is still weighted to win again despite having gone up 5lb for landing a rough Curragh handicap last week so he gets the nod. Waterboy beat Dinkum Diamond narrowly over the course and distance before running very well in a 1m2f handicap here that has worked out well while Tremendous Leap has ben a bit unlucky in maidens and makes his handicap debut from what looks a fair mark. Dalton Highway, who is probably warming up for Galway, is returning from a long break and needs further but Atlas looked like winning when taking the lead in the straight at the Curragh only to be found wanting in the closing stages.
