Georgie has won here in the past and was a good second to Golden Kite at Galway two runs ago. He should be in the mix but Moving On has been fighting a losing battle with the handicapper since winning at Ballinrobe in July and Noble Pageant has now had 23 attempts to get off the mark, though was third over this C&D off the same mark last time. COOL ANNIE is lightly raced for her age and, though creeping up the weights, is almost guaranteed to run her race again and can finally open her account under Rules though Ballygill Gale should run her close having come back to form at Galway last month. Music On D Waters was pulled up on her handicap debut at Listowel but may still prove the pick of the remainder.
