Verdict

DANCILA's form is on an upward curve so he gets the nod in a very open-looking handicap provided he is none the worse for his exertions here on Friday night. Angel Dorcha is next on the list on the back of his recent Limerick success, with course-winner Massaman another who can have a say.

  1. DANCILA (IRE)
