Waltz Legend runs in her first handicap and is worth a second look. Take A Shot has a chance on his best form while Flying Windsor won over a shorter trip here in November, though is still 6lb higher. Easy Vic won at Leopardstown in March and Tony Martin's charge still looks to be on a fair mark but there was plenty of confidence behind KNOCKANARRIGAN over hurdles at Tipperary 12 days ago and he was just beaten. He's yet to make the frame over fences but the handicapper has given him a real chance on these terms against much more exposed rivals. Fennis Moll also looks attractively weighted and Shark Hanlon's winning pointer can't be ignored.
