The assessor has certainly had his say with SULLANE CHIEF, who landed a Cork handicap by 12l last month, coming home with his head in his chest. Conor Walsh reduces the weight rise of 15lb by almost half and his mount can complete the double. More Madness, who was beaten 22l into third when conceding 24lb has since run a close second at Punchestown and has to be a major threat with a huge pull in the weights. Yeoman is much better known as a chaser but is well handicapped over timber and can get involved from this mark while Sea Rocket ran well for a long way on her hurdling debut at Naas. Tudor Fashion was in very good form when last seen in the spring and if fit enough to do herself justice should get into the act.
