Verdict

Joe Eile will love the conditions but the combination of a long absence and his highest ever mark just tempers enthusiasm. Srucahan really found his form on testing ground last October and is by no means badly treated though he's needed his opening run in his first two campaigns. Battleroftheboyne will be fit enough despite beaten a very long way by the classy Gordon Lord Byron at Dundalk and he's another who will like the ground. Fastidious ran quite well behind Khawatim at Dundalk last month but there are reasons to believe that ELUSIVE PRINCE, who was behind and returning from a break, can reverse the form and take this with that run under his belt as he's just 2lb higher than when scoring for David Barron on soft going at Chester last summer. Bird's Eye View has to be a threat as she made a winning reappearance on heavy going here in August, her only start of the campaign.
