Verdict

Lookoutnow has been raised 13lb for his latest success at Gowran in February and faces a difficult task on his reappearance. CAIM HILL has won 13 of his 47 races and is extremely versatile. He's been in fine form on the Flat this summer and though high enough in the weights his jockey's claim is a bonus so this could be victory number 14. Skibabe won a maiden hurdle at Fairyhouse last October but was a bit disappointing when strongly fancied at this meeting a couple of weeks later. He makes his handicap debut and the betting should be monitored. Malt Gem is another having his first start in a handicap and he looked in need of a marathon when scoring at Cork in April.
