Verdict

CRAY turns out under a 4lb penalty just two days after justifying favouritism at Tipperary. He has half-a-mile further to travel here but won with a ton in hand and a quick double looks on the cards. Call Of The Loon has been raised 13lb for a convincing victory at Kilbeggan but that's unlikely to prevent another big run and would be the obvious alternative if the selection doesn't turn out again. Chapter Two is the only course and distance winner in the line-up though her victory came on very testing ground while the veteran Bye Bye O Bye is on a very long losing run, though has no problems with the trip and is on a reasonable mark.
