DICK DUNDEE hasn't had much racing and though headed on the run-in by Not For Burning at Listowel is just 3lb higher and well enough handicapped to take this. I Never Knew That is 7lb higher than for her victory at Sligo last month but is on the upgrade and is capable of producing a big effort. Miranour got off the mark over timber at Downpatrick and this isn't much tougher while Corr Point, four times a winer on the Flat, should be scoring soon over hurdles judged on his run at Kilbeggan last time. Knocklayde Vic hasn't run well in three races since returning from a long break but would be a big threat if back to anywhere near his best.
