John Hayden has saddled the last two winners including Harriers Call a year ago but conditions will be very different today and the top-weight may struggle. Headford Lady has been in brilliant form all year and there was nothing wrong with her close third behind Anam Chara at Cork last time though she's been raised another 3lb. Pat Flynn has placed WAYDOWNSOUTH superbly and the youngster gained yet another impressive success last time when easily landing a Navan handicap. He's 11lb higher and this is tougher but he looks capable of making enough progress to take this. Hawkhill is another in good heart and he goes for a hat-trick on only a 4lbs higher mark after a battling success at Gowran where he led right on the line. The very progressive Super Say is another to consider in yet another tough handicap for punters to unravel.
