Verdict

HELLO LOUIE had been threatening to win a race before he finally lost his maiden tag with an emphatic victory at Downpatrick on Friday. His 4lb penalty shouldn't prevent a quick double, especially as his rider's claim takes care of most of the extra. Robbie Kaydee isn't the most consistent of performers but there are lines of form suggesting he can get involved if on a going day but Spiker The Biker, who alternates between hurdles and fences, has now had 30 races under Rules without winning and only scored once between the flags in 18 attempts. Dochas Beag ran well enough at Tramore a couple of weeks ago after an absence since 2009 so could prove a threat off his lowly mark.
