MILLINGTON went up 7lb for his victory at Naas but made a bold bid to overcome the extra there on Monday where he just failed to concede 15lb to Twistsandturns. He's on the same mark here and Gary Halpin's claim can see him back on the winning trail. Right First has been threatening to win a race for some time but has gone up 6lb since making her handicap debut without winning. She was just ahead of Anner Queen at Down Royal last time but Tony Martin's filly was very unlucky and should reverse the form and provide the biggest threat. The veteran Copper Dock is best over this trip on fast ground these days and can't go much lower in the weights but Furacano, who wasn't far behind the selection at Naas and is better off at the weights, hasn't won in 21 starts.
