Verdict

Most of these arrive in good form and have scored over the course and distance. Almadaa is very poorly handicapped compared to his Turf rating but ran well in a Listed contest last time and Tom Madden's claim is a bonus. Rummaging just held on over 7f last week and is better over this trip. He's 4lb higher but that shouldn't pose too much of a problem and he has to be on the shortlist. Longfield Lad won here a fortnight ago by 3l but the assessor has waded in with a massive 12lb rise which looks excessive. He was receiving 18lb when narrowly beaten by Knock Stars over the minimum trip last month and the winner is 9lb better off. Salvado was having just his sixth start when landing a maiden here last month and improvement can be expected but INVINCIBLE RIDGE, who won twice for Richard Hannon back in 2010 though has yet to hit the mark in Ireland, has performed well in strong handicap company on Turf and is well enough treated to take this.
