Verdict
With the 15 race hurdles maiden Walkers Point at the head of the weights, there's not all that much to get excited about lurking below. However, there are a couple of runners to keep an eye on in the market who could be of potential interest if the money arrives. These include the upped in trip duo It's Only A Dream and Getaway Rose (handicap debut). However, the Noel Meade trained mare True Identity probably is least exposed of those horses which fit that aforementioned profile. Of those with more form in the book, Glenabo Bridge tackles an extra four furlongs after being a plunge horse over 2m here last week, with that form put to the test in Division 1 by Zagnzig, whilst Wexford winner Come Home Quick could be thereabouts despite a rise in the weights. However, the speculative play is PADRAIC O'CONAIRE, with Paul Townend switching to this lightly raced gelding after partnering stablemate Grandma Dotty at Galway latest.
