Verdict

Considering it was his first run for 18 months, SEADER wasn't disgraced at Thurles in November. He's been given time to recover from those exertions and may well be ready to strike in a fairly uncompetitive handicap. Funky Munky is probably the danger as he's been placed at Carlisle and Catterick in his last two starts, though he probably has a bit to find with Mighty Whitey on collateral form. Nowurhurlin and Grand Diamond aren't without ability but haven't shown much recently and need to step up now.
