Father Jack was staying on strongly at the finish over this trip at Ballinrobe so has to be on the short-list on his handicap debut. Aces And Kings has a big weight to carry and is better handicapped over fences where he produced a very good run at Wexford last time. Shattered Dream has run poorly this season while Sultana Belle was runner-up in a Perth seller. DERRINLANNA reappeared after a long absence to perform with credit over 3m at Kilbeggan where she was in the lead at this trip and, as she's just 2lb higher than for her only success over timber, she's given the nod to double her tally.
