IRISH HEARTBEAT is looking to end a long losing run and went close to doing so over 6f here last time. He gets another chance racing off the same mark today. Silverware has been running well over longer trips at the track and is not easily dismissed as he had Rossetti behind when second on his latest start. Jack My Boy was a losing favourite at Ffos Las in August but, like Pelmanism, may be better over 6f and Unlimited is preferred to both as he went close over track and trip on his penultimate start.
