Brian Ellison loves bringing horses to Ireland and is double-handed here. Balty Boys arrives at the top of his game after landing a very strong Newmarket handicap for which he's been raised 6lb. The lightly-raced Baraweez was disqualified for interference after finishing first in a Class 2 handicap at Newcastle and to add insult to injury he was then raised 5lb in the ratings. Bold Thady Quill hasn't won since landing a Listed contest in March of last year but he's been unfortunate to bump into a couple of Ballydoyle inmates in his last two starts and should make his presence felt. SPECIFIC GRAVITY has returned from a spell in Dubai in good form and was carrying a huge weight when a very good second to Breathe Easy at the Curragh. He'll be ready for this and with Sean Corby's claim a major plus he's taken to gain his first success in almost two years. Vastonea doesn't win often but did land this in 2012 and is on exactly the same mark.
