Drive On Locky was narrowly beaten by SEVEN ACRES over this trip at Wexford before going one better over shorter at Tramore. There's nothing between the pair again with the latter just preferred to confirm the form and complete a double. Sarah Battle has been in good form though she's 12lb higher than her only success and has gone up recently without winning. That's The Dream scored over fences on New Year's Day and though better handicapped over timber he couldn't take advantage at Fairyhouse three weeks later. Gold Not Silver tackles this trip for the first time while West Of The Edge is proving unpredictable, though his best run came over this trip at Clonmel last month.
