Verdict

Count Salazar is 10lb higher than when last successful and is still climbing the weights after recent placed efforts. HILLMAN scored at around this trip at Wexford before finding 2m4f too short on this track so he's taken to regain the winning thread. Spiker The Biker hasn't won a race under Rules in 26 starts and Ardglen was a long way behind the selection at Navan though did run better when sent to Market Rasen last time. The Book Thief is another long-time maiden though he didn't run badly at Kilbeggan last time.
