A low-grade contest where the market is best observed for clues. Denis Hogan is a master at placing his horses in this type of contest and has two runners here. He's down to ride My Old Lady from the bottom of the weights but she's shown nothing while Alan Crowe has been booked for Emmy Lou, who makes her handicap debut and showed a bit of promise in bumpers. ON MY OWN is the only course and distance winner in the line-up having won this in 2012. He had a long lay-off before returning in January and though not in the best of form this looks his sort of level and he's handed a tentative vote. Notification has had little racing for his age and gave notice of an imminent success when fourth behind Snowell at Clonmel last month while Josie S And B ran reasonably well behind that winner at Wexford.
