Verdict

ABOVE THE LAW showed nothing in three runs last season and began in handicaps at Dundalk on Friday from a mark of 50. He absolutely bolted up and the assessor will take a dim view so a 5lb penalty looks nowhere near enough to stop him. Cookie Crumbles can't get her head in front on Turf but ran another fine race behind Sassaway at Tipperary on Thursday and her turn can't be far away. She was behind La Canaada here in October but the winner has a 10lb rise to contend with and an absence to overcome. Landsdowne will probably find this too short on his reappearance but Kateeva bounced back to form at Tipperary last week and enters the equation as she's been dropped a couple of pounds.
