PACELLI ROAD, whose five runs over timber have yielded just one placed effort, arrives in top form having landed a Leopardstown handicap on the Flat a month ago and looks ready for this. He'll be facing several in-form rivals including Beckwith Star, who won a handicap here on Monday in very good style and should get into the frame despite an 8lb rise. Dashing Lady had been threatening to win a race for some time before getting off the mark at Killarney though that was over 2m4f. Gordon Elliott has booked Kevin Sexton for Luddsdenene and the combination can go well as can Lilly The Lioness, who ran a cracking race from out of the handicap here on Wednesday and is very well treated. Bashful Beauty was well beaten here on Friday.
