Hitdroadjack had an engagement here last night, as did reserves Double Windsor and Cottonvale. A consistent sort in maidens, TOUCH BASE wasn’t winning out of turn at Downpatrick and is fairly treated on his handicap debut. He is preferred to stablemate Canny Tom and Miss Sassie, who has been chasing. Fleurys Fort won at Sligo last month but was beaten by Coolfighter over track and trip earlier and that pair meet on the same terms. Glendine River usually takes on better opposition than this but is still 8lb higher than when scoring here last year.
