Verdict

Rain In Spain had shown nothing in handicaps before landing a Sligo maiden though that was over 2m5f. Whoyakodding also looks as though he needs further as his recent victory at Wexford was over 2m4f. Desertmore Dreamer had been running poorly before a much better effort at Tramore while the five-year-old TRENCHTOWN ROCK (NAP) was having only his fifth start over timber when landing a Wexford handicap and normal progress can see him complete a double. Blue Skimmer is 0-26 but he's been running well in similar company and should get into contention. Island Villa has won over the course and distance and though that was his only victory in 43 starts he's gone close recently and could snatch a place.
