CAIM HILL has won twelve of his 40 races in all types of disciplines and showed his wellbeing with a victory on the Flat at Limerick last month. He was in tremendous form at this time a year ago and is with the right man to have him at his peak. Sports Line has only won once over fences but has dropped to a fair mark as a consequence and produced his best run for some time at Wexford last month. Muzak looks a real threat despite being 5lb higher for a scrambling victory at Ballinrobe as he's enters the fray in very good heart while Sicilian Secret has generally performed at a higher level and won't mind the conditions. Acapulco Gold was left clear at the last when scoring at Wexford and is 11lb higher but is progressing nicely and should get into the mix but Carlito Brigante was well beaten in a tougher race at Kilbeggan on Friday.
