In depth

Verdict

Plenty of these have been running well at Dundalk including Catwilldo, who won her latest start and is 3lb higher today. Lady Mega and Queen Grace won their respective maidens on the all-weather track while Majestic Timeline landed a couple of handicaps over 5f on the Polytrack in November. Jembatt only won by a short-head at Tipperary last time but Big Bad Lily, Above The Law and Rangooned all finished well behind. A winner over 6f here, FREEDOM SQUARE has been given a chance by the handicapper dropped in the weights for his return. Jim Bolger's colt gets the nod to take advantage and come out best.
