Baresi bounced back to form in the autumn and deserved his victory at Naas. He won't mind the ground but is 8lb higher and has an absence to overcome. Getoutwhenyoucan was receiving 13lb when beating SIR HARRY CASH 4l at Naas in January and the latter can take his revenge on today's terms having gone one better here a fortnight ago. He's handed the vote though Sammy Black beat a big field in good style at Naas and will be battling on at the finish. Wooly Tom now looks a bit high in the weights after his victory at Fairyhouse and Foot Soldier appears better on quicker ground.
