The handicapper has been busy recently hitting FLEMENSFORD, False Messenger and Tilly Ann with 10lb rises for recent victories. The former's success came at the expense of False Messenger over 2m4f here and he should confirm the form on today's terms and take this. Tilly Ann was having only her sixth start over timber when gaining her second success in a Navan handicap with Lady Roberta well beaten and Adrian Murray's mare can improve further. Stony Grey Soil ended the last campaign beating a huge field at Cork on heavy ground in April but may just need the run while the consistent Just Moscow has been looking a few pounds high in the weights this year.
