Verdict

Araglen Lad gained his first success under Rules in emphatic style at Gowran but couldn't handle an 8lb rise at Clonmel and was struggling when coming to grief. Hold Em Cowboy makes a quick reappearance after beating Easy Vic over hurdles at Navan on Saturday but a 10lb rise looks harsh. Imperial Joey made all for a very emphatic victory here in September but couldn't handle a big step up in the ratings and trip at Tramore then fell over fences on a return visit here. Slew Charm was once taking on the likes of Somersby and Overturn but that was a long time ago and a career strike-rate of 1-56 tells its own story. TIPPED UP HARRY scored over fences at Clonmel in February and has been running well over hurdles recently so looks well enough handicapped to go in again.
