A low-grade handicap where the market may prove a good guide. CHINOOK RUN has found his feet on fast ground and followed his victory at Wexford with a good effort from 7lb higher on the same track. That's the best recent form on view and he's handed the vote under the excellent claimer Mark Bolger. Countess Salome is very inconsistent but has performed well on her last two starts when the ground has been fast and she has to be on the short-list. Two of Split Ear's victories over hurdles have been on this track so he's respected but Green Thirty Two has done much better over longer trips. Sweet Sylvia has been alternating between hurdles and fences and hasn't done badly.
