Verdict

Having found 19f too sharp in a Naas novice last month, SMASH THE LAMP is appealing back in handicap company and returned to a trip similar to that over which she showed promise at Tipperary and Thurles in October. I Don't Get It should be in the mix once again, but he's 0-22 in this sphere and is far more exposed than the selection. Courting Vickie and Fairoffthecross are each-way players.

  1. SMASH THE LAMP (IRE)
  2. I DON'T GET IT (IRE)
  3. COURTING VICKIE (IRE)
