DAZZLERS DAY had shown nothing before a very easy victory over the in-form Miss Ellie at Limerick on Friday. First-time blinkers obviously aided his cause but the assessor was impressed enough to raise him 14lb so today's 4lb penalty should pose no problems and a follow-up looks likely. Jacks Island has been running well over shorter trips and it's difficult to see him out of the frame while Native Court has shown ability over hurdles and enters the fray having won a point-to-point at Loughanmore in November. Bobsthewizard hasn't won for three years but is 10lb lower and has performed with credit on both starts after a very long break.
