Represent Yourself landed a course and distance claimer for David Wachman last month and has joined Ger O'Leary. She's nicely bred and can do better though Shinyhappyjohn, who was around 4l back in third, is much better off so must have every chance of turning the tables. POLITICAL PARTY scored over 6f a month ago when Count Of Carabass was beaten 3l then made a bold bid to defy a 4lb rise over a mile a fortnight later where he had Fight U For It back in third on the same terms as tonight. With Conor Hoban claiming 3lb he can get back on the winning trail.
