All The Mollies (15/8), Scorpion Black (11/2), Day Dreamin' (15/2), Munfallet (8/1), Irish Art (8/1), Casa Romano (9/1), Voyageofdiscovery (10/1), Throwaway Line (10/1), Highway To Heaven (12/1), Crest Of A Wave (12/1), Clueless Hill (16/1), Stocai Ban (20/1), Alice Milligan (25/1), Is Fantastic (25/1), By Rail (33/1), Dasheen (40/1), Quite Subunctious (40/1), Punches Pious (66/1)

Verdict
The Dermot Weld-trained, SCORPION BLACK can land the spoils in the closing race of the afternoon. The Shamardal gelding appears to have been given a chance by the handicapper with the five-year-old continuing to run well in defeat in a number of starts in the last month. Top weight, Munfallet can once again give a good account, doing all of his best work towards the end of proceedings, while Voyageofdiscovery can go well at a price from his 'bargain basement' mark. All The Mollies and Throwaway Line are worthy of further consideration as post time approaches.
