      Verdict

      RECKLESS LAD has won eight times around here including twice earlier in the year. He ran well at the Curragh last time and looks capable of conceding the weight. Steelriver has a poor strike-rate though did run a bit better at Limerick last time but six-times course winner Our Manekineko has shown nothing in two starts since returning from a long break. The three-year-old Poetic Light drops into this company after a disappointing run when well supported at Bellewstown but Eos showed much improved form over 1m2f at Naas and though having plenty to do on official ratings may be capable of better. The veteran Seanie is probably still capable of a decent run at this level though he's never won over the trip and Dream Malfunction may prove best of the remainder.
