A typically competitive Leopardstown handicap in which BALEFIRE
is the unknown quantity in this field on handicap debut for Mick Halford. He showed a good attitude when winning at the fourth time of asking recently and starts life in this sphere off a very fair mark. The stables other representative, Sky Seven
, is worth another chance now he has been eased a bit in the weights after making a disappointing debut on turf., while similar comments apply to Sherkali
who failed to justify market favouritism in a very warm handicap assignment last time, but held a solid profile prior to that below-par effort.
