A low-grade handicap in which most are out of form so the market could prove a good guide. CODE DANCER couldn't handle firm going at Killarney but her two previous efforts on ground similar to this put her in the picture and she should reward each-way support. Naughty Molly ran really well on her handicap debut at Roscommon and though that was on quicker going than she'll face here she's won a point-to-point on soft ground. Old Supporter had been threatening to win a race over regulation fences and did so at Wexford so a 5lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run. Baizically jumps and stays at his own pace but could have done without a 4lb rise for his second at Cartmel last month.
