Charlie Swan has done a brilliant job in placing Getoutwhenyoucan to land four races in succession and even with an 11lb rise the progressive five-year-old can't be dismissed as Ger Fox is great value for his claim. Desertmore Stream was conceding almost two stone to Pivot Bridge when beaten 3l at Fairyhouse and on today's terms can gain his revenge and get into the frame. WOOD BREIZH makes his handicap debut after a facile victory in a Tramore maiden. He's likely to be carrying a bit of overweight but looks well treated and can complete a double. Flatfoot Boogie looks a big threat as he's had very little racing but returned to his best with an excellent run behind Master Oscar at the Punchestown Festival. Benemeade could go well at a fair price in an open contest as he was just getting into contention when falling at Punchestown.
