This will be the most competitive race on the card and LAS ENCINAS could just be the answer to it. Adrian McGuinness' filly has ordinarily campaigned over a mile but she was well backed ahead of a similar race here in May, and managed to run into the places. Regal Concorde has shown nothing so far though victory would be a nice fillip for Dermot Weld ahead of a busy week at Galway. Lindenhurst has had a run over hurdles at Hexham and isn't out of this on a return to the Flat having dropped 6lb since his last appearance. Seeyouallincoppers has gone up 4lb for a recent effort at Killarney and in a weak affair, the line of form reads particularly well. Irish Bulletin is yet to race this season but the colt appears to have been campaigned with handicapping in mind and he should be noted on this belated reappearance.
