Verdict

Dualla Time was always going easily in the lead when making all in a maiden over 2m4f here last month so shouldn't be inconvenienced by dropping back to the minimum for her handicap debut. Walking In Memphis was having her first start for Gavin Cromwell when runner-up in a 2m3f Downpatrick maiden and is another likely to be suited by the shorter trip. So Enjoy has had 19 career starts without winning but was placed in a Cheltenham Grade 3 in April before chasing home the potentially smart Princess Vega in a Tramore maiden. She should go well while Cailean's Angel very nearly won a maiden here a year ago and was returning from a break when running well for a long way over 2m4f on a return visit last month. Courtin Bb is 2-48 and though running well enough almost certainly needs further so a chance is taken on last year's winner SLAINTE AND THANKS, who hasn't won subsequently but showed a bit more dash at Tramore last week.
