Verdict

KNOCKRAHA KING was first past the post at Tipperary last week though he lost the race in the steward's room subsequently, racing off the same mark now before reassessment, he may be able to make amends in what looks a competitive line-up. Nobody Home was third over this trip at Cork recently and can build on that effort while the booking of the champion jockey on Seaweed means he deserves some attention in the market ahead of his first start in a handicap. Lady Mona Lisa and Batchelors Walk could improve their efforts going handicapping while Aces And Kings is nicely weighted if able to transfer last month's point-to-point run into this game.
  1. Knockraha King
  2. Nobody Home
  3. Aces And Kings
