Verdict

Connections of QUESTIONS ANSWERED have had this race in mind for some time and the plan was to score at Limerick on Sunday then come here with a 4lb penalty. He achieved the first target and, as he's still 18lb lower than his chase mark, the second part looks his for the taking. Catch Me has won eight times over timber but a long losing spell means he's dropped to a very lowly mark and he almost took advantage here at the end of last month. Bose Ikard easily landed a Downpatrick maiden and an early mistake appeared to unsettle him on his handicap debut at Naas. Sarabad has plenty of decent form to his credit and looks well enough treated to get involved while Skibabe looks just the type his trainer does well with and it would be no surprise to see him in the shake-up.
