Portmore Lough (6/4), Shady Operator (9/2), Ask Heather (11/2), Father Jed (15/2), Sumos Novios (10/1), Damut (10/1), Nambour (10/1), Templemore Dream (12/1), He Rock's (14/1), Mick The Jiver (20/1), Timiyan (33/1)

Verdict

The J P McManus-owned PORTMORE LOUGH would not have to improve too much on his win at this venue earlier this month to go in again off a 7lb higher mark. The Presenting gelding got off the mark for connections at the fourth time of asking over fences when landing a 2m2f handicap and can see off his biggest dangers who are likely to be Ask Heather, winner of a novice chase at Tramore earlier this month and the Mick Winters-trained Damut who may have conditions to suit. Improved effort from C&D winner, Nambour would not surprise.
