Verdict

Knights Templar has returned to action in fine shape after a break having won at Gowran before finding heavy ground against him at Roscommon. Red Laser had a couple of lengths to spare over The Reek here in September but couldn't handle the 8lb rise on his next start and the runner-up should get much closer. SOLAR HEAT hasn't had much experience and is still a maiden but she's been giving out signals that her turn is close and tonight looks her opportunity. Diamond Daze has yet to win a race in 17 starts but she's been going really well at this level and the assessor has dropped her 2lb which gives her a chance here with Johnny Murtagh on board.
