Verdict

On My Own has struggled at the weight following his victory at Thurles in November and again looked one-paced at Fairyhouse during the week. Sean Airgead was running well when last seen in the summer but may just need this while Jack The Pirate hasn't been done any favours on his handicap debut. Storm Breaker's two victories were gained over 2m5f so a chance is taken with CANTRELL. He beat a huge field at Naas last March from a 1lb higher mark and though running poorly over 2m4f last time an earlier effort behind Baby Whizz over this C&D gives him a chance.
