Verdict

Weld Arab has had the regulation three runs for a handicap mark, all over much shorter trips, and could hardly go any lower. He'll be ready for this and the market should give a good indication of what's expected. Ebadani certainly deserved his opening victory at Killarney and now he's struck winning form should go on from there. Solar Focus is lightly-raced and looks to have some scope while Pyromaniac's victory over Strandfield Lady at Leopardstown was a fine effort. Landau was staying on well over 1m2f at Leopardstown and will be spot-on but stablemate Time To Work looks as though he needs further. Winning bumper WHAT LIES AHEAD will need a strong gallop but showed enough pace when scoring over an extra furlong at Ballinrobe to suggest he'll have no problems with the trip and Willie McCreery's charge looks the one to be on.
