Verdict

BENSOON performed well over this sort of trip at the backend of last year and would have found 1m1f too short on his reappearance at Gowran last month but stayed on gamely to snatch the spoils and will be much better suited to tonight's trip. He can follow up though the very lightly-raced Jack Daddy had some decent form last summer and will be better for last weekend's effort at Listowel. Time For Action makes his handicap debut and this longer trip will be more to his liking while Solo Performer has generally competed at a much higher level and with 10 victories behind him is always dangerous.
