Verdict

This may not be as competitive as the numbers suggest with many of these having shown little so far and others returning from a summer break. LEAH CLAIRE has won four times on the Flat and has had a couple of runs on the level since finishing third in a maiden hurdle at Ballinrobe in July, the most recent at the Curragh on Saturday. She has the potential to be a lot better than these and is taken to open her account. Baby Whizz was sent off favourite at Galway last month but has been struggling off his new mark, while Wither Hills has gone up 5lb since being thrown out by the stewards after finishing first past the post at Roscommon. Bellewstown fourth Hevelius looks the pick of his trainer's three entries but still looks too high in the weights.
