Ambush Angel invariably runs over longer trips but was travelling well at today's distance at Downpatrick last week before failing to quicken over an extra quarter-mile. She's not badly treated and can go well as can Ballyspellan Lad. The latter won nicely at Kilbeggan a week ago but an 8lb rise in this slightly better race may prove too much for him. KEY ACCOUNT is hardly prolific having won just once in 24 career starts but he's been running well and is on the same mark as when a good third to Lancing at Cork last time so is handed the vote. Cheap As Chips should get involved as she will enjoy the easier conditions but Chinook Run is 10lb higher than his lone success on fast ground at Wexford in June.
