Verdict

HARRY SPEED (NAP) has a poor strike-rate but had dropped to a lowly mark when making most over a mile at Listowel and only fading close home. Connections will be delighted to see him down another 2lb and the in-form Andrew Slattery is a strong booking. Fair Game has a similar profile and didn't run badly on her return from a long break at Gowran and her stable is in good form but Confident Kid is 0-21 and rarely runs away from Dundalk these days. Althib is back on the same mark as his only victory and Killian Leonard is one of the more experienced riders here while Shane Crosse will ensure Procurator gets a good ride and his mount has taken a hefty tumble in the weights since last summer.
