Lake George returned to form at Naas on Wednesday and though penalised has won off higher marks in the past. City Of Culture had Norville just behind when runner-up to Hi Emperor at Fairyhouse but the latter has since scored at Down Royal and may be a better bet than Willie McCreery's maiden. Have A Nice Day is very consistent but the handicapper may just have got to him, a remark that also applies to Doonard Prince who is 10lb higher than his last winning mark. Blackstone made his handicap debut here on Friday and though he had no answer to Feach Ar Agaidh time may tell it was a very good effort and he must be a threat if turning out again. However, a chance is taken on the maiden CAMAKASI, who hails from last year's winning yard and was noted staying on strongly over 6f here earlier this month.
