Verdict

CAIM HILL was gaining the 14th victory of his career when landing the Midlands National at Kilbeggan and Philip Fenton has booked Shane Shortall to reduce his big weight by 7lb. The eleven-year-old is one of the most versatile performers around so reverting to hurdles is no problem and another victory looks on the cards. Give Me A Break is running very well and has to be a threat in receipt of so much weight. His run behind Prince Rudi at Galway last week was his best yet and it will be a surprise if he's not there at the finish. Ellie Mia had been threatening to win a race for some time before doing so in a Roscommon maiden over this trip and she makes her handicap debut on a reasonable mark while Oscar Buzz stepped up to this trip for the first time at Galway last week and produced his best performance for a long time.
