It's hardly surprising that the assessor saw fit to raise WYOYO 13lb after his victory at Down Royal as he came home almost 10l in front of the consistent City Line. Ger Lyons' charge could hardly have been more impressive and looks much better than a 69-rated handicapper so should score again. Truly Delightful enjoyed the very testing ground and the much shorter trip at Listowel and will find things very different here but Little Arrows can usually be relied on to do his best though he rarely runs over trips this far nowadays. Golden Silence hasn't had much experience and disappointed when strongly fancied at Tramore after a promising run at Leopardstown.
