Raise Hell won his maiden in very good style but hasn't been done any favours by the assessor as he makes his handicap debut. SAMMY BLACK finished in a place in two tough Leopardstown handicaps before finding Un De Sceaux too strong in a Punchestown maiden. That winner looks useful and the remainder were 25l behind so Tony Mullins' charge can get off the mark. Speed Dial has won two handicaps here in recent months and hasn't been unduly punished in the weights so must go close but Treat Yourself has gone off the boil since completing a double late last year.
