Verdict

Carried has had his last ten starts here winning a 1m2f handicap a year ago and running consistently all last winter. He's returning after a long break so is likely to need the outing. Jon Ess has won around here and is well treated at his best having dropped to the lowest mark of his career. Tremendous Leap was placed in his first six starts, including on this track, before landing a Curragh handicap in August. He's continued to go well and is 2lb lower than his winning mark so has to be greatly respected. His stable companion Wisdom Mind was thought good enough to run in a Group 3 last time and has been dropped in the ratings despite some very good performances in strong handicaps. KATIYMANN is on exactly the same mark as when successful here in December and he's been in fine form in very lucrative handicaps at the Curragh and Leopardstown the last twice and has been handed a chance to return to winning ways. Aussie Valentine makes a quick reappearance after another fine effort at Tipperary on Sunday though his only victory here came in 2013.
