Verdict

Wate And Sea completed a double over this track and trip but couldn't handle a 9lb rise on a return visit though she ran well for a long way. Zane Grey will enjoy the conditions and can revert to hurdles on a lower mark after scoring over fences at Tramore. Cristy's Call had been running quite well before gaining a surprise victory over today's rival Gold Tantrum at Down Royal and Danny Benson's claim wipes out the subsequent weight rise. The runner-up had previously finished fourth to PLEASED AS PUNCH at Tramore and that line of form suggests the latter should have the call here with just 4lb extra to contend with. Spot The Header was in the process of running a big race at Ballinrobe when falling two out but that was in May and this could just be needed.
