After scoring over 2m4f at Wexford, Fairymount Lord may have found 2m against him at Ballinrobe and it was his battling qualities that saw him home. He's up another 7lb here and this looks a tough handicap. Churchfield Champ has also been raised 7lb for his recent victory over the C&D but he's progressing nicely and is probably still on a fair mark. Magnetic Force couldn't cope with a 4lb rise for his Tramore success when beaten at Limerick and is on the same mark here so it's SEAN AIRGEAD who is handed the vote. He likes this track having scored here in August and ran another very good race behind Sorted a couple of weeks ago. Runner-up Our Ollie runs in the previous race and a big run from him will be a bonus.
