Verdict

WELLS CHINA's only victory to date came over this course and distance in June and, though now 10lb higher, he's been running well enough to double his winning tally. Kick Start has yet to win a race but ran so well behind Might Be Magic at Fairyhouse a fortnight ago that he's an obvious danger. The Conker Club has a course and distance victory to his credit and, though hardly consistent, it would be no surprise if he bounced back from a poor run at Cork. Silver Chief and Afatcat are others to consider along with the four-year-old Benalex Park, who hasn't had much experience but starts from a low enough mark.
