Several arrive here in good form in particular Above The Law and Allegra Tak. The former is progressing rapidly but will need to be having gone up a massive 13lb for completing a double here a couple of weeks ago. Allegra Tak went up 8lb for winning at Naas but defied the rise at Tipperary and is now a further 12lb higher so faces a stiff task. She was earlier behind Srucahan at the Curragh but reversed the form later and Paul Deegan's charge looks held. Scatty Cat has the form to win this but looks as though a longer trip would suit, a remark that also applies to Arbitrageur. THEYTURNEDMEDOWN was less than 2l behind Allegra Tak at Naas and is 17lb better off. His latest run behind that winner can be completely ignored as he raced alone on the far side and is given the nod with Leigh Roche's claim a major bonus.
