Verdict

Both Calle Aneto and BLUE RIDGE LANE took advantage of a slide down the weights to score on their latest starts. But the former's win at Sligo was his first since 2009 and the latter makes more appeal. John McConnell's charge won last year's renewal when Fairy Court was well beaten and can come up trumps once again. Master Melody went close at Fairyhouse in between a couple of modest efforts while the lightly-raced Sixteen Again may prove better than we've seen thus far now handicapping for the first time.
