As with Jimmy Fortune in the previous race, Kieren Fallon also has just the one ride today and WARNEFORD can make it a winning one. The penny finally dropped with the lightly-raced four-year-old when winning a claimer for Brian Meehan at Leicester in October and his new yard has a fine record with similar types. Eyedoro makes a quick reappearance after a short-head defeat at Southwell last week, although he was beaten out of sight over C&D in November, while dual course winner War Of The Roses was pulled up here on last month's comeback after being badly hampered. With Hindsight steps up in trip having won a maiden at this track last time and makes more appeal than September's Dundalk winner Mount Abora.
