Verdict

It looks like the handicapper has finally got to Cool Baranca while Makhzoon only won a claimer here last month. Locked Inthepocket should make a bold bid to complete the hat-trick, however, and What A Steel is another recent course winner, though his best form is over further. INOOGOO needs to improve again to confirm recent running at the track with third Parson's Punch but is probably capable of doing so and can score again for George Bewley with Willie Hall returning from a short break. Athronan, second at Downpatrick last Tuesday, is worth a second look if the market speaks in his favour however.
