A low grade contest in which Manger Hanagment has to carry a big weight despite never having won a race. His recent second to Drive On Jim over the C&D entitles him to respect, however, and he should be concerned in the finish. Givemeabuzz gained her first success under Rules when coming with a powerful burst to catch Merry Cowboy over 2m4f at Tramore and looks certain to be suited by the longer trip. Her penalty shouldn't prove too much a problem and a big run is anticipated. Akadyr didn't mind the testing conditions at Tramore on New Year's Eve and should be considered but this can go to STABILO. Very lightly-raced, he's improved on his last two starts and showed real determination to get within three lengths of Flemensford over the C&D after looking beaten at one stage.
