Melanippe and High Hill Beauty met in a Clonmel handicap last week and the former just came out on top in fourth though the latter was having her first start since August and can gain revenge. Both must be considered in this low grade event while Runaiocht showed his first worthwhile form when tackling this trip and handicap company at Wexford. SEEYOUALLINCOPPERS didn't show much in his first campaign but attracted some support on his handicap debut at Limerick last month. He attempted to make all in testing conditions and, as he should be suited by this quicker ground, is taken to hang on this time.
