Usa is the youngest in this line-up and makes his handicap debut after landing a maiden here last month. This is much tougher with Nurse Ryan and Rockazar both likely to be in the firing line after battling out a finish at Down Royal earlier this month when the former just prevailed. HEVELIUS has to be produced late and hit the front too soon at Clonmel but did just enough to land the spoils and he had more in hand the than winning margin implies. He can complete a quick double though C&D winner Split Ear has dropped to such a lowly mark that he looks certain to get involved in the finish.
