Verdict

The handicapper may not have caught up with GREEN FOR GOLD despite an 11lbs rise for his latest success at Cork when he gained another facile victory. Christy Roche is striking while the iron is hot and a hat-trick looks on the cards. Black Rock Lake is running well enough to go well from a low mark but Flight Control looks a more likely threat as he won nicely at Clonmel and makes his handicap bow from a decent position in the weights. The progressive Charger is another to consider while Fearnwood Girl has been in good form for most of the season.
