Verdict

LA CANAADA won this a year ago on soft ground and though not in that kind of form subsequently he's been performing on much quicker going and is taken to repeat the success. Better Value has never won a race but blinkers could liven him up and he looks well enough treated to get involved. Chillie Billie is also a maiden after 22 starts but can't get any lower in the weights and showed that his turn is near with a better run in the mud at Listowel. Silldora has struggled at the weights since scoring here in June and Bosworth Field showed little improvement when dropped to this trip for the first time at Tipperary.
