A tough handicap to bring a fine card to a close. Piri Wango has won half of his eight races and did really well to beat Einstein's Folly at Gowran for which he has a 7lb rise to contend with. That's Plenty won three times on Polytrack then gained his first victory on Turf at Musselburgh. He followed with an excellent run at Chester and is definitely on the short-list. HARLEY'S HARLEY went up 7lb for her victory at Tipperary and was badly drawn on her next start at Leopardstown but she could hardly have won more easily. She's been hit with a massive 13lb rise but is progressing fast enough to complete a hat-trick. Woodsophiesmile and Dynamite Dixie fought out the finish of a tough handicap here earlier this month and there's little between them again with preference just for the latter while the lightly-raced Daredevil Day is unbeaten in two handicaps, though he's another to be hit with a big rise in the weights.
