Verdict

A very moderate handicap but it's just possible that POSITIVE EVENT can bounce back and takes this despite being ridden by an inexperienced pilot, who was on board when Jim Bolger's charge showed good pace for much of the way behind Chaparro here last time. That was his first start since May and he was in very good form at this time last year. Blaze Trailer is much better known as a hurdler/chaser these days and hasn't been in the best of form but Red Jim appeared to show some improvement at Ballinrobe in August and can get involved. Loughderg Princess had produced virtually nothing before a fair run at Killarney and it wouldn't take much more improvement for her to take a hand in this finish.
