Verdict

WATERBOY has a couple of pounds to find on official ratings but looks capable of being ranked higher judging on his victory in a big field over a mile here last month. He'd run over 1m4f earlier so tonight's trip looks ideal. Claregate Street won a strong Dundalk handicap early last month then ran well in a premier handicap at the Curragh where she would have finished closer with the run of the race. Aussie Valentine was a couple of lengths behind in that latter event but Ado McGuinness has booked a 10lb claimer so he's much better off at the weights. Sharjah has been looking a few pounds high since scoring at Dundalk in March though the race conditions suit him while The Moore Factor has changed stables and ran very well for new connections on his return from a long break at the Curragh.
