Magnetic Force is the sole Irish raider and connections are clearly pinning their hopes on plenty of headgear doing the trick but he still has plenty to do at the weights, although the actual weight range here isn't overly considerable. In a tight contest, HOTGROVE BOY makes some appeal off the bottom rung, having placed behind the progressive Robin's Command the last twice. He meets nothing of that calibre here, and despite an unappealing wins-to-runs ratio, could be well suited by the step up to 2m4f. Gleann Na Ndochais should be in the mix if putting a recent tumble behind him as he'd been in good nick previously whilst Harrys Whim did well to get as close as he did to Imjoeking last time, although his ability to deliver a clear round does have to be taken on trust.
