Verdict

Jackemil dropped back to 6f to record his first victory at Listowel when Fast On was a long way back in third and Mobiliser even further behind. A 9lb rise won't aid the cause of John Walsh's filly and ELUSIVE EXPRESS looks the one to be on. She beat today's rival Chillie Billie at Down Royal before just failing to follow up at Dundalk and is still well enough treated to return to winning ways. Mick Halford has his horses in tremendous shape at present so even a big weight shouldn't prevent a strong performance from Eastern Rules, who was returning from a very long break when catching the eye at Leopardstown in August.
