Supreme Vic showed that this trip and ground were just what's required with a hard fought victory at Ballinrobe and he should be thereabouts with his rider able to claim more than the 5lb rise he received. Although The Flying Doc ran her best race to date at Limerick she was still beaten 10l and has been raised 7lb so this looks a stiff task. Drishogue Boy's form figures don't inspire but he's shown a glimmer of ability and this trip could bring about some improvement. FANTASTIC BOB was having just his third start in over two years when third over 2m1f at Clonmel last month. He'd shown promise in his early days so hopefully he's back to his best and is on a low enough mark to take this. Udo's Choice followed a very good run at Tramore with a shocker at Downpatrick and may prefer softer ground.
