This has been a very good race for outsiders in recent years but SALACIOUS SALLY will attract support after her demolition job at Fairyhouse and she should defy a massive 12lb rise in the ratings, especially as Ricky Doyle, who rode her that day, is on board again. Roja Dove, who started favourite at Fairyhouse, is better than she showed that day while the veteran Hide The evidence has won five times over hurdles but is still a maiden on the Flat though he ran well at Down Royal last time and is on a lowly mark. First Friday won a ladies' handicap by 7l at Tipperary and looks a threat with his rider's claim a consideration while Sian hasn't been beaten far in her two latest starts and, as she has been lightly raced can go well under the experienced Marc Monaghan.
