Verdict

Lancing showed his first sign of ability when tackling fast ground at Perth and should come on enough to get into the action in a poor contest. ABOLITIONIST has done better since facing fast going and is handed the vote after a fair run over slightly further at Limerick. High Talk is a regular around Downpatrick and is better over fences these days but Blue Vic took a fierce hold at Bellewstown last time and would be a threat on his earlier form if Keith Donoghue can keep hold of him.
