Jim Bowie had to race off a higher mark when sent over to Ayr a fortnight ago and did well to finish third. He should figure in this but ALGHANEM is preferred. The latter made the frame behind Seven Acres in a more competitive race at Wexford last time and a similar effort should see him bang there at the finish. Chrisdonlady won over fences at Killarney last year and can race off an 8lb lower mark today while Easy To See beat Seaboru when third at Limerick before finishing well behind the selection on his latest start. Fast Exit looks best of the rest on his recent fourth at Tramore.
