Verdict

Primroseandblue is penalised for scrambling home in a four-runner race at Limerick and may not be up to conceding weight to PROTARAS. Noel Meade's charge scored at Down Royal in May and has competed at a higher level so looks the one to be on. Nearest The Pin doesn't win often and has been alternating between hurdles and fences. He's better treated over these obstacles so should get into the action. Sarabad reverts to hurdles after a spell chasing where he scored on this track.
