UNDERTHEBOARDWALK only had one run last summer, scoring over fences at Tramore. He returns over timber on a 12lb lower mark and with a recent run on the Flat under his belt can take this. Bose Ikard was well supported to gain his first success in a Downpatrick maiden and made no mistake, coming home seven lengths clear of Dashing Lady. He makes his handicap debut on a fair mark while Baresi has been running well enough in tough handicaps to be considered. Dancers Dilemma, Sea Rocket and Jewel Star are all well enough handicapped to make their presence felt in an open contest.
