Verdict

The Ballyboys travelled stylishly at Limerick last time and won his race well to open his account. The drop in trip isn’t a big concern but off a higher mark and against some potentially decent opponents, he might struggle to follow up. Killahara Castle ran well over this C&D last month and while she has potential, there's no certainty she'll build on that run. Station Closed is respected on his second start for Gordon Elliott but ran poorly at Ayr last month. THEREWASATIME has shaped well in maiden company and can grab this on handicap debut with fitness on his side from recent spin at Gowran Park. Get Up And Go is another respected in first handicap start having shown enough in maidens to suggest he'll be winning races. Hareth and Bay Hill are returning from long absences but would be contenders on their old form. 1. There Was A Time 2. The Ballyboys 3. Get Up And Go
