Verdict

It's difficult to find one without a chance in a tricky handicap though Granny On Fire's best form has been over further and Target Acquired has struggled at the weights since completing a double in July. HARPIST didn't run very well at Roscommon last time but her earlier form puts her in with a real shout and, as she may just have had an off-day, she's taken to regain the winning thread. Longfield Lad is returning to form and Victor's Beach is just 1lb higher than his only success to date.
