Verdict

Big Generator almost made all at Navan last month but was caught close home by Spacious Sky, who has been beaten subsequently. A 4lb rise is easily wiped out by his rider's claim and another big effort is envisaged. Not For Changing has an 11lb rise to contend with after staying on to catch Not For Burning at Fairyhouse and the shorter trip isn't certain to suit. Somethingwonderful couldn't cope with Grade 1 company last time and makes his handicap debut from a high enough mark so it's VAXALCO who gets the nod. Jim Culloty's youngster is progressing nicely and followed a very close third at Navan with a cracking run at Fairyhouse where he was caught in the dying strides over that 2m4f by Followmeuptocarlow. Allez Vic got off the mark at Downpatrick in great style and is another to consider in an open event.
