Verdict

An intriguing handicap, preference is for INSANE BOLT to continue his fine run of form. He took the eye when staying on well at Tramore last time and with only a 2lb rise for that placed effort and being on a current good run of form, he could prove to be hard to beat. Bua Boy looks to be the main danger given his striking Galway win and while he steps up in trip, escapes a penalty for that, while the likes of Dollar Value and Ellie Mac posted encouraging returns but will need to step up once more from them.
  1. Insane Bolt
