Snowell is likely to be a warm order to complete a hat-trick and the assessor hasn't been too hard on him. With his rider able to claim his 7lb it will be a surprise if he isn't in the shake-up though on earlier form MISTY LADY should have his measure. She was conceding him 7lb when beating him over 4l at Fairyhouse in January and though beaten twice subsequently she's taken to bounce back. The Engineer is still a maiden but has bits and pieces of form that could put him in the picture while Seamus Mor landed a Naas handicap by 15l before finding 2m4f too far at Navan. Benalex Park would enter the equation is getting a run from his reserve spot.
