Mark Me Up has a little bit more to do after winning a novices' handicap at Wexford and though Killcara Boy has run well here in the past he may do better when sent over further. It wasn't much of a race that HILLMAN won at Navan but he proved himself to be on the upgrade and proved his stamina on testing ground. He's gone up in the weights but still looks capable of better and can complete a double. Playing won here in December but shot up the weights and hasn't been competitive in subsequent races.
