Useful jumper KEELAGHAN could hardly be better handicapped on the Flat and though beaten twice here in September they were better races. He's since won over fences at Cork and should be good enough to gain his first Polytrack victory. Dazzle Dancer was having only her third start on the all-weather when beating King Of Aran here last week and hasn't been punished with just a 3lb rise. She looks certain to go well while the two three-year-olds at the bottom of the weights, Eighteen Summers and Golden Nugget, are also expected to get involved, especially the former whose good run behind Boynagh Joy over a mile here a month ago was his best to date.
