In depth

Verdict

Trazar will attract support after his shock victory at Tramore though the assessor appears to have overreacted with a 10lb rise. Theonewiththeleg had been running well after losing her maiden tag at Sligo in July until falling at Galway and she should get into the shake-up while City Line is generally thereabouts though a strike-rate of 0-28 over hurdles tells its own story. Top Spin is also a maiden over timber and looking high enough in the weights so a chance is taken with INVINCIBLE DON, a winner at Cork in July who ran well on the Flat at Gowran last week.
