In depth

Verdict

All The Chimneys has won twice around here and his run at Ballinrobe last month will have put him straight for another crack. Antimatter had dropped to a lowly mark when scoring at Listowel and a 5lb rise shouldn't prevent a big run though he was probably fortunate as THE RUBINATOR, having his first start for new connections and a maiden winner at Wexford, was in the lead when falling at the last. Ross O'Sullivan's charge has been put up 2lb but can gain compensation. Wooster easily landed a novices' hurdle at Cartmel though is 7lb higher than his last handicap mark while Iamastartoo is still a maiden after 18 starts though has been placed eight times. The veteran Here For The Craic is in good form though is held by Touch Of Gold on their run at Clonmel.
