Jembatt is 5lb higher than his latest success but reappeared with a fine run at Leopardstown where he might have won but for finding trouble in-running. He looks a threat to all but FIOSRACH looks the one to be on. Jim Bolger's charge had shown progressive form last season so it was no shock when he returned to action with a victory on heavy ground at Limerick on his handicap debut and a 5lb penalty shouldn't prove insurmountable. Harley's Harley attracted very good support on her return to action at Leopardstown but couldn't get into the race and may need another furlong. Alfaayza showed bits and pieces of form for Karl Burke and makes her debut for new connections on a fair mark.
