Royal Acclamation should have done better dropped into this grade last time and the same can be said of Look For Love. KIRSTYS LAD showed some improvement when third over a longer trip here a fortnight ago, however, and gets the token vote in a poor handicap. Set To Go has the past form to figure on his comeback though he hasn't raced since July so Irish raider Esytopolishadimond could prove a bigger threat on the back of an improved effort at Dundalk last time.
