Verdict

The veteran Patrickswell had dropped to a lowly mark when scoring at Bellewstown and an 8lb rise looks tough though he's won from higher in the past. Midfield General looked one-paced on his handicap debut at Leopardstown and though dropped a couple of pounds may still be too high and TOCCATA BLUE looks the one to be on. Ger Lyons' charge found 6f at Fairyhouse too short a week ago and though both victories have come over a mile he should stay this without too much fuss. Susiescot had Packsapunch a short-head behind over 7f here last August but that was on testing ground and neither have been in the best of form.
