Seamus Mor thrives on testing ground, which he had at Naas three weeks ago where he bolted up by 15 lengths. Not surprisingly, he's been raised 12lb and has another half-mile to travel. GOLD NOT SILVER had been threatening to win a race for some time and finally did so at Down Royal where he was well suited by stepping up to this trip. He's been raised 7lb and this looks tougher as he only just held on but easily holds third-placed Corskeagh Royale and can complete the double. Carsonstown Bridge and Rodeo Rocket are both capable of winning again soon but return from long breaks and that may take its toll in these conditions. Vincent Row has yet to win in 18 career starts but has gone close on several occasions and ran a fine race behind Inis Meain over a longer trip here a couple of weeks ago so looks a threat. Spiker The Biker is well handicapped but still a maiden after 31 starts.
