Verdict

Pencil Hill is on the same mark as when successful here in February and would have needed his recent run at the Curragh so must be considered along with the well handicapped Rigid Rock, just 1lb higher than his last success here in November. Almadaa has a huge weight and prefers another furlong as does Knock Stars, who has never won at the minimum. ALL ABLAZE completed a long-range hat-trick, scoring at Bellewstown in August then here in September and on his reappearance in March. Back on this surface over his best trip he's taken to go in again. My Good Brother won off a 5lb lower mark here in November and ran well enough at Bellewstown last time to be considered.
