Verdict

Irish raider That's Plenty arrives in good form having won the first two legs of a recent treble at this track. But this is a much a tougher task for both him and his compatriot Star Links, a winner at Galway in September. Silverware also steps up in class after scoring here last time while all-weather regulars, Docofthebay and Verse Of Love, have been nowhere near their best of late. MACRET couldn't get to grips with Come On Blue Chip here a fortnight ago but a repeat of his fourth looks good enough in this context and he gets the nod.
