Verdict

Muscle Beach has mainly competed at a high level so it was a surprise when he started at 20/1 for his victory at Fairyhouse last week. He's been hit with an 11lb rise and may not be up to conceding 5lb to VECTOR FORCE. Colin Keane rode his 100th winner over the weekend and won't be able to claim but he scored on Ger Lyons' charge at Dundalk in December and was on board for an unlucky effort at the Curragh last month where he didn't get the run of the race. Derulo made an impressive handicap debut here last month when well supported and is likely to improve again despite a 9lb rise but the interesting one here is Longton, a well-connected colt who was sold after impressing for Richard Fahey in his first season and makes his handicap debut off what could prove a lenient mark.
