SPEED DIAL has been in good form on the Flat and over timber and scored over 1m4f at Gowran last month so he looks reasonably treated and can get back to winning ways. Mad For Road didn't appear to be suited by 2m at Dundalk after scoring over 1m4f there so should be thereabouts while Massabini has also been in good form at Dundalk though it's disconcerting to find him still a maiden after 18 starts. Lady Lyrath has exactly the same strike-rate but she will surely be winning soon while Sian produced two very good efforts on this sort of ground last summer. Castle Guest is capable of winning this if ready after a break despite being 17lb higher than his only success to date.
