A low grade handicap where most of the runners are out of form so a market check is advised. Back To Drumdeel would have a chance if the going turned soft which seems unlikely but Valours Minion will enjoy the conditions and though still a maiden may well be suited by tackling this longer trip. HELLO LOUIE has had 15 starts over timber without winning but came close when just failing to catch Strain Of Fame at Clonmel last time and looks ready to lose that maiden tag. Spiker The Biker has been going reasonably well over fences but he's never won a race under Rules and has had plenty of opportunities.
