THE FIRM landed a double at Dundalk for Kevin Prendergast earlier in the year. He makes his debut for a new yard off the same mark as his latest win and is worth sticking with in this company. Skidby Mill scored over track and trip earlier in the year and has run well since without being quite good enough while Bloodsweatandtears went close in this grade at Kempton last month and can also figure. Cravat should have come on for a recent reappearance over 1m2f but it's hard to make a case for any of the remainder.
