If Paul Gilligan has no problems bringing out Harangue again after his successful trip to the UK the five-year-old, who completed a double in comfortable style under AP McCoy at Southwell on Sunday, then a hat-trick has to be a possibility with just a 6lb penalty to contend with. However, he won't have had much time to get over the journey so BOUNCING BETTY looks the more logical solution. She was making her handicap debut when scoring at Downpatrick in the style of a progressive mare and a 5lb rise looks manageable. Presenting Kate was a big disappointment at Ballinrobe after her battling victory at Downpatrick while the successful point-to-pointer Make It Better probably needs further.
