Ontheground managed to lose his maiden tag at the 17th attempt at Wexford in October and, though carrying plenty of weight, this is a low-grade handicap and he can get competitive. American Flyer struggled badly after landing a Tipperary maiden and Bulletproof is 7lb higher than for his only success though he did run well when last seen at Wexford in October. The veteran Moving On scored over 2m6f at Thurles in January and this looks too short. ROISIN DUBH is given a very tentative vote in a race where the market could provide some clues as he won a Kilbeggan bumper in August and gets in here on a very lowly mark.
