Taken Twice won this last year and looks to be running back into form so has to be respected. Court Frontier stays the trip well enough and has been going well from similar handicap marks but She Be Fine has twice disappointed when favourite after an easy victory at Wexford. FANTASTIC BOB went up 5lb for landing a Listowel handicap but almost defied the extra at Killarney. Both races were over 2m4f and this will be his debut over tonight's trip but he's expected to be suited and gets the nod. Rory's Brother hails from a yard firing the winners in and though still a maiden over hurdles he's won over fences and is 11lb lower.
