Verdict

Top weight won't be a problem for Landsdowne but he goes best on ground with some give which is unlikely here. Follyfoot has also shown her best form on much softer going than she'll face here while Philosophers Guest ran so poorly last time that she cannot be fancied. Noinformation was seen making late ground over 7f at Roscommon and the longer trip will suit but this can go to the lightly-raced ROCK OF HOPE, well behind Follyfoot on soft ground at Ballinrobe but a close fourth in a strong handicap on fast going at Roscommon last time and looking well handicapped on that form.
