Verdict

Secret Recipe has a huge weight for a three-year-old but he'll love the ground having gained both victories in heavy going. He's tried in blinkers after a moderate run on his return from an absence since May. September Lily is 3lb out of the handicap but looks ready to win again soon from this sort of mark after a very good effort at Cork last week. SHIPYARD made a promising debut over this trip at Listowel on heavy going and showed his versatility by scoring over 5f at Navan. He makes his handicap debut and can complete the double though Gunner Lindley looks a big threat on his return to the Flat after a spell of hurdling.
