Tinas Exhibition has now had 16 starts over timber without winning and deserves a drop in the ratings. Whisky Galore has only had one less race over hurdles and he's also a maiden though he's on the same mark as when just beaten at Perth. Boots Madden has struck form and his URHAVINALAUGH can continue the good run. He was having only his sixth start when producing a better effort at Cork last time and this shouldn't take much winning. Khan Tengri looks a threat as he scored at Tipperary and ran very well under a 6lb penalty at Limerick four days later. Mackey Boy is decent enough in this grade but needs further.
