Verdict

FEEL DES MOTTES showed some improvement when winning in decisive fashion at Clonmel so he could be capable of defying an 8 lb rise. Aunty Audrey is another who arrives on the back of career-best win, responding well to blinkers at Tramore 2 weeks ago, while Hurricane Alex is a potential improver on handicap bow.
