KEDLESTON and Little Arrows both carry 5lb penalties for victories at Leopardstown on Thursday. The former was gaining his first success on Turf after two Polytrack successes and looks the type to go on to better things. Little Arrows was returning to form after a long losing spell but remains well treated even with his penalty and has to be a threat. Boom To Bust bounced back to winning ways at Naas and scored over the C&D in August. He is just 5lb higher here and with his young rider claiming 3lb his chances are obvious. He holds Cheval Rouge on that run though the latter appeared to find some improvement at the Curragh last time.
