Taqarrob is by the sprinter Bushranger and takes a big step-up in trip after his latest run over 7f at Dundalk in October. ALAFZARA started favourite despite carrying a big weight in a Limerick handicap last month and got to the front before fading over a similar trip to todays. That's as good as she is but the opposition here is weak so she's handed the vote. Roheryn looks the main threat as she ran well on her return to action behind Lahinch Classics at Dundalk and there should be more to come. Jessica Harrington has been sweeping all before her over jumps so even though Silent Lady has shown little she shouldn't be dismissed but Love The Feeling was well beaten in a Clonmel handicap on Thursday.
