Magnetic Force has been raised 5lb for Sunday's Downpatrick victory but Ben Dalton's claim takes care of the extra and it will be a surprise if his mount isn't involved in the finish. Alf Wright is better over fences but that's reflected in his handicap mark over timber and he'll enjoy the softer going. Line View had Magnetic Force behind when scoring at Limerick though that was on fast ground which he appeared to be suited by. ZANE GREY has been making steady progress and was an impressive winner over Chinook Run, who runs earlier, at Wexford. He's 11lb higher and has more to do but is improving fast enough to defy the extra.
