Verdict

Crystal Earth twice ran well in November and would have needed her comeback here last month. She makes her handicap debut and should be winning soon. Winning bumper Makethedifference made an encouraging handicap debut behind Sir Harry Cash at Limerick and with just a 3lb rise to contend with has to go on the short-list. Denis Hogan sent BENALEX PARK to Musselburgh for a handicap in January and the trip paid off with a comfortable victory. The stewards held an enquiry into his improvement with first-time blinkers given as the reason and, as he's effectively off a lower mark here, this looks another good opportunity. Green Energy has to be a threat despite dropping back in trip after his victory over a huge field at Down Royal. He was always travelling well and a 7lb rise shouldn't prevent another big effort. Sacre Malta looks best of the remainder though may find this on the short side.
