Verdict

HELL ON EARTH is not one of the leading lights from his stable but his trainer has shown patience with the gelding and was rewarded with his best effort to date last time out at Fairyhouse. A repeat of that performance should see him going close and there may be more to come from this six-year-old. Rebel Waltz is another who has been slow to come to hand but has shown in his latest few outings, he may be a winner in waiting. This drop back in trip is not ideal but he may still be good enough to play a leading role. Lady Mccabe has shown a deal of consistency and produced one of her best efforts last time out on her handicap debut. If progressing again, she could go well.
