Carpet Elegance won this a year ago from just 4lb lower and scored over timber last month so is no forlorn hope to be successful again. Dancingwithangels hasn't won a race in 23 starts so connections won't be happy with a 5lb rise for finishing second at Sligo. TEOCHRIOS is a huge filly and has taken time to reach her peak but she looked the type to continue on the upgrade when scoring at Fairyhouse and can defy a 6lb rise and complete a double. The veteran jumper Mahrajaan reverted the Flat with a fine run behind Bobskier at Limerick on Friday and Glance Of Doon stepped up to this trip for the first time and stayed on strongly to land a Tramore handicap last month.
