Verdict

Fair Dilemma looked to have a better chance at Limerick yesterday so that run should be monitored. Barneys Honour was having just his second run after a long absence when storming to victory at Navan but the handicapper has raised him a massive 14lb and this is much tougher. Alf Wright won a chase by 13 lengths last time and has shot up the weights as a consequence so it's no surprise to see connections taking advantage of a more lenient hurdles mark and he should go well. WHATDREAMSRMADEOF was conceding 4lb to Treat Yourself when beaten five lengths at Gowran and today's revised terms suggest she's very well handicapped, especially after her easy victory at Fairyhouse. She gets the nod though the novice Shesonlyahorse is progressing nicely as she showed in very testing conditions at Tramore.
