Verdict

Fit The Cove has had a brilliant year and was gaining his third success since July when storming to victory over 6f at Listowel. He's even better over this trip and an 8lb rise shouldn't prevent another big effort. Ningaloo Reef began his winning run in June off a mark of 47 and he's now a massive 29lb higher. He's progressing so quickly that he should still get into the mix but PACKSAPUNCH looks the one to be on. Andrew Lee's charge won easily at Tipperary and very nearly defied a 9lb rise when a short-head behind Susiescot at the Curragh and has been raised just 1lb for that effort. Love Is The Key beat a huge field on heavy ground at Fairyhouse but that was her first ever victory and she's 10lb higher.
