It's rare to find one from Ballydoyle at the bottom of a handicap so President Lincoln, who has done most of his running at Dundalk, is one to keep on the right side as he may be capable of better. However, he was touched off by DEVONELLI on the Polytrack a week ago and Mick Halford's progressive filly looks capable of following up under the promising apprentice Conor Hoban, who was on board that day. Gleadhradh found Limerick's 7f too sharp last time and should do better over the extra furlong on her handicap debut. She should again have the advantage over Maundays Bay, who was behind on her return to action that day. Red Shaheen needed every yard of the 1m2f trip at Naas and may find this too short .
