      Verdict

      Kielty's Folly has a high draw to contend with as he attempts to follow up his recent win over C&D. Easter Hills seems to save his best for the Fibresand nowadays and scored at Southwell last week, while Fitz has proved better over shorter trips so far. Blue Noodles, Ermyntrude and Swansea Jack have all gone off the boil since winning here earlier so the vote goes to bottom weight GADABOUT DANCER. She won twice on the turf last year and Declan Carroll's filly doesn't look badly handicapped on that form.
