WAYDOWNSOUTH is the pick of the weights in the claimer and is fancied to follow up last month's victory over a shorter trip at Tramore and he's been in good heart since returning from his winter break. Burnt Sienna is usually thereabouts over hurdles and on the Flat and has Seamie Heffernan in the saddle. But she's still to get her head in front and may have to settle for a place again here. The Fox Tully might just need this while Cool Athlete saves his best for the Polytrack. Peggy's Leg will have her stamina to prove over this trip.
