Togoville has been narrowly beaten in handicaps over this trip on his two latest starts and it will be a surprise if he's not concerned in the finish again. Beau Satchel went up 10lb for his narrow victory over APACHE GOLD at Cork in May but it didn't prevent him following up at Listowel, for which he's been raised a further 6lb. Bu the runner-up, who has since returned to Cork and scored on faster ground, is taken to reverse the form and complete a double. Furacano is held on that Listowel run though she's since run much better over this trip at Naas. Carraroe Flyer was sent to Ayr last month and was very well supported to gain her first victory which she did in comfortable fashion, though she was aided by the soft ground.
