Verdict

SPIN POINT hasn't had much experience and it showed at the Curragh a couple of weeks ago when he ran in snatches. He makes his handicap debut here and a mark of 82 may prove lenient so he gets the vote. The front-running Xebec just failed to last out over 1m4f at Naas having won over a furlong less at Killarney and he'll take some catching over this trip but the real fly in the ointment is Jacobs Well. Noel Hyndes' charge was returning from a 10-month break when gaining a shock victory at Naas on Wednesday and a 5lb penalty is unlikely to prevent another big run. Stronger Than Me won this a year ago from 2lb higher and hasn't had much racing subsequently so is another to consider but Hurricane Twister and Crown Pleasure were both engaged here yesterday.
