Three of these, including the winner Abby Cadabby, were involved in a similar handicap at Clonmel on Thursday. Andy Oliver's filly has a 5lb penalty which may allow third-placed Caliso Bay to get much closer but Dixie Highway, who once again flattered to deceive, has plenty to do to make up the deficit. He's also held by PUNCH BAG on their run behind Hellenistic at Limerick and it's Brendan Duke's charge who comes out best on collateral form so gets the nod. Ed Led Jed showed a bit of promise last term but takes a big step-up in trip.
