Revolutionary Road defied a 6lb rise for his Tramore victory with another success at Ballinrobe but he's up 9lb for that last victory and this is tougher. Alderimli, who finished fourth in that Ballinrobe event after being raised 7lb for scoring at Down Royal, meets the winner on much better terms and should reverse the form but PLEASED AS PUNCH looks the one to be on. She showed nothing in heavy ground maidens but produced a massively improved performance on her handicap debut at Listowel last month when the ground was good and with further progress likely she can gain her first success. Vedani tackles fast going for the first time on his handicap bow and the market should be noted for clues as he's from a yard that get them ready.
