It could be Dermot Weld again as STUCCODOR has improved with every run and, though 9lb higher for beating a big field at Leopardstown, looks capable of more progress. Hot Bed hasn't been seen since April but has had just four runs and is one to keep an eye on while Wonderful is much better than she showed when beaten a long way at the Curragh and the assessor has helped with a drop of 5lb in the ratings. Kedleston couldn't quite manage to see off Snap Alam from this mark at Ballinrobe where he didn't appreciate the testing ground but Stocktons Wing, who was earlier behind him at Leopardstown, loved the heavy going at Sligo and will be well suited by today's conditions.
