Another low-grade affair in which NIGHT SINGER gets the nod by process of elimination. At least he has two victories on the board, including a handicap at Cork last month, and Ian Brennan's claim helps to negate his 5lb rise. El Toreros is still a maiden after 14 starts and is best over further though he's slipped to his lowest ever mark. Fleeting Moment had been in winning form at Dundalk before finishing last when reverting to Turf at Wexford but Lady's Locket produced her best run to date at Navan last time so it's a surprise that she has been dropped 2lb in the weights.
