A poor maiden in which Fantastic Bob will attract support despite being absent since August and producing his best form on much quicker ground. Bearly Legal easily won a point-to-point at Tinahely in January and wouldn't need to be a world-beater to make a winning debut over timber while Philip Fenton's newcomer Drive On Locky has the pedigree to go well against moderate opposition and the betting should be watched. MACKEY BOY made a very promising handicap debut over a slightly shorter trip in October and though showing little in subsequent races this represents a drop in class and he can gain his first success.
