Although BAILY DUSK has won over 3m, he just ran out of steam over that trip here last week and can gain compensation as he still looks reasonably treated. The Blarney Rose hasn't had much experience over regulation fences but has scored five times between the flags and her recent form puts her in the frame. Jolily hasn't been in the best of form since scoring here in February but he's only 5lb higher which is taken care of by his rider. He's one to keep an eye on as is the mare Sherika, who has dropped to a lowly mark. The consistent Western Man is making his handicap debut over fences and usually gets round in his own time so looks one for the Placepot.
