A moderate looking event but SAVE MY BLUSHES can continue the good form of Denis Hogan. Three times a winner over hurdles, he can race from a 17lb lower mark than over fences and this should be within his capabilities. Jack The Hat scored at Ballinrobe last month but failed to defy a 6lb penalty three days later and is up another 1lb here. Key Account was due to run in the 5.40 last night and that result should be noted as he's running well enough to be considered, though he was behind Abolitionist at Sligo in June and the latter didn't run badly at Galway. Killough Kin was beaten 13 lengthswhen runner-up at Downpatrick and will need to find more.
