Plenty of runners here but LANCING is likely to be a warm order despite being the only four-year-old in the line-up. Tony Martin's charge came here for a handicap a couple of weeks ago and was always travelling like the winner. He's been raised 10lb but has more to offer and can complete the double. Samantha Jones followed her point-to-point victory with a resounding success over 3m here in May then was just touched off over this trip at Ballinrobe. She's a progressive type who should get into the mix with her rider's claim a big help. Knockanarrigan couldn't quite hold off the challenge of Taken Twice over 3m at Roscommon but had travelled well throughout and should be more at home over this trip. Lash It On is one to keep an eye on in the betting as he's shown promise and couldn't be on a much lower mark.
