Verdict

Ffos Las third Numbercruncher and The Rockies are proving difficult to win with while neither Derwen Pryde nor Gorgehous Liliege showed much on their respective reappearances at Ffos Las and Huntingdon. INAMALABALUSALOON hasn't been seen since justifying favouritism in a Cartmel handicap in July but the former pointer is relatively unexposed under Rules and Noel Glynn wouldn't have sent him over from County Clare if he didn't fancy his chances. The booking of crack amateur Derek O'Connor is another positive. Fidelor was having his first run over fences at Bangor four weeks ago and will know more today but the handicapper hasn't been over generous.
