Verdict

A vey tricky handicap for punters to fathom, especially as the in-form Morethanafeeling has been raised 8lb for her narrow victory at Fairyhouse. Mctaggart and Heroine Chic both ran quite well behind Bendzoldan at Down Royal and that winner has won again so the form looks decent. College Sam has been running poorly on Polytrack but reverted to Turf at Listowel and ran her best race to date from today's mark so she can go well but ARAGORN ICON looks the one to be on. He's been running consistently on Polytrack but it's his form at this time a year ago on Turf that points to his chances as he completed a double with a victory at Killarney and returns on a 2lb lower mark.
