Several of these enter the fray in god form, none more so that DONT TELL PA, who has completed a hat-trick of handicap victories in testing conditions. Not surprisingly he's shot up the weights as a consequence but Jane Mangan has been on board for all three victories and her claim can bring about success number four. He had Shesonlyahorse 6l behind at Limerick last time and the runner-up looks held but Call Rog can provide a threat. Mouse Morris pitches the youngster into handicap company after his maiden success at Wexford and wouldn't be running unless expected to go well. Mallowney is another making his handicap debut and he'll appreciate the testing ground as will the useful Flat winner Popmurphy, still a maiden over hurdles but lightly raced and on a low enough mark to be a threat to all.
