Connaught Manor has shown nothing since landing a bumper on his debut and has his first start in a handicap. Day Dream Boy is running very well and followed his battling victory over Rightville Boy at Limerick with another fine effort on this track. He looks sure to be in the shake-up as does surprise Limerick winner Carrow Queen, who is ideally suited by testing conditions. Thats The Dream has stamina to spare as he showed over fences at Tramore and the winning point-to-pointer will be staying on when others have cried enough. Easy Vic keeps flattering to deceive and is still a maiden after 29 career starts but this can go to ZEKARYA, who had just taken over the lead in a 3m handicap at Leopardstown last month when falling at the second last.
