Verdict

ROCK ON SEAMIE had performed with credit over hurdles here last month before landing a 1m1f handicap at Tipperary on Thursday. He's penalised 6lb but his rider's claim takes care of the extra and this doesn't look any more difficult. Cork Harbour is an obvious threat having followed a close second at Cork with a battling victory at Clonmel. She's up 6lb but looks certain to get into contentions. Hit The Rocks makes his handicap debut after a much improved run in a maiden on the latter track while Royal Admiral has been narrowly beaten over shorter on several occasions so today's trip should see him in the firing-line. Happy Company hasn't run since beaten a head at Galway in October but would have to be considered on that form, especially if the ground turns soft.
