This is a poor handicap with most of the entries out of form and it could be one for the market watchers. WATERLOO CHATEAU was having only his second start in three years when an excellent runner-up to Fresh By Nature at Gowran on Friday and though not certain to stay this trip that form is the best recent run on offer. He's handed the vote as though Admiral Barry has been running well on the Flat he's another with stamina doubts. Having won a point-to-point, there are no stamina issues with Native Court who wasn't beaten at Downpatrick far when last seen in August while Kylecrue is another whose stamina could see him in the frame.
