Burn The Floor will attract support on his handicap debut as Jim Bolger is a master at placing his horses but the form of his improved second to Anderiego at Tipperary in April hasn't worked out at all. AN MHI is a specialist over this trip and carried a huge weight to victory at Roscommon last time. He's been raised 3lb but his excellent young rider more than nullifies the extra with his claim and the combination can go in again. Copper Dock is rated much higher on the all-weather where he has won four times but he proved himself more than capable on turf when scoring over the C&D last month and is still very well handicapped despite a 7lb rise. He looks the main threat though there was good support for Prescient at Dundalk last time after a cracking run at the Curragh but she failed to sparkle on the surface.
