Verdict

A 30-runner handicap hardly looks the best betting medium and Diamond Daze, who is well enough handicapped to take this, was beaten for the 23rd time here on Sunday. Elusive Gent gained his first success at Down Royal last month though couldn't handle a 6lb rise on his subsequent outing but September Lily has a chance at the weights, especially if there's more rain. Winning Impact would also like soft ground and he's won here in the past while Senor George was having only his fifth start when running well behind Star Links at Galway last month. Jim Bolger tries Sophisticated Heir in blinkers but in an impossible race to forecast HAVE A NICE DAY, who ran his best race so far at Dundalk last time, is handed a tentative vote.
