Verdict

Luimneach Abu would be interesting if getting a run from his reserve spot. Wells China has to go on the short-list after scoring by five lengths at Clonmel when dropped in trip and the four-year-old Ice Ice Baby has shown a bit of promise. But we'll take CHINOOK RUN to confirm recent course running with Pennys Tune, despite slightly less favourable terms, and double his tally. He may just be a late developer and has always shown his best form on top of the ground.
