This isn't the best of races and it's unlikely that Onzo Mor, who won it in 2011 from the same mark, can repeat the process as he's been in very poor form. OUR GIRL LUCY has the form to win this at her best and though she hasn't been running well recently the handicapper has given her a chance as she's 1lb lower than when beaten a nose at Limerick in July. She's given the nod though Dale Street, who makes his handicap debut, and Theshowisover, the winner of a beginners' event at Limerick in July, look dangers.
