Verdict

With Joseph O'Brien doing the steering, ELUSIVE RIDGE can make light of today's drop in distance. The majority of the five-year-old's runs here have been over 1m3f and 1m4f but he did win over a mile at Bellewstown in July and races off the same mark this evening. Tarrsille has been knocking on the door and is only 2lb higher than when second over C&D last week. He shouldn't be far away again from a good draw and appears to hold veteran Toufan Express, Quinmaster, Madeira Man and Solent Ridge on that run. Devonelli won over C&D in May and is starting to come down the weights again. He usually runs well here so is another for the short-list.
