Verdict

Many of these are having their first start in a handicap including PILLOW, who has been racing in decent company and wasn't disgraced in a big sales race at Galway last month. He's by no means overburdened with a mark of 75 and can concede weight all round. Meebo did a bit better at Cork last time while Gold Necklace has come up against some smart performers and will appreciate this drop in class. Bru Mor started off quite nicely in May and probably needed her comeback run last month after a long absence.
