Quarryvale made all over 3m here a year ago but that was from a 19lb lower mark. She's obviously improved since then and ran very well at Clonmel last time when Jacks Island was well behind though the handicapper may have got to grips with her. Barneys Honour loves heavy ground and is capable of a big run and it will be interesting to see how the youngster Profit Margin performs on his handicap debut. Limakeery and YEOMAN were almost upsides when third and fourth behind Cloghmile at Gowran and though a long way behind the front pair the form has since been given a major boost. Yeoman is no better off but the more testing conditions may allow him to take this with his very low weight.
