Several with decent claims in this including Glenglade, who is raised a further 8lb after landing a double when beating Papa Stour here last month. Maaward also bids for a hat-trick having defied a penalty in novice company at Kempton but it could pay to stick with ZAP. Richard Fahey’s charge won a valuable handicap on last week’s trip over to Leopardstown and is only 2lb higher today. War Glory scored in this grade at Kempton a fortnight ago but was behind the selection earlier in the year while Charles Molson finished runner-up in a similar contest here three weeks ago and is preferred to Poet's Society.
