Quicker ground should not worry connections of recent Kilbeggan winner RUNNING IN HEELS, who was a winner on good ground in her days in Britain. She won with plenty to spare at Kilbeggan and can confirm the form with third-placed Crown Of Thorns. Several of these are potential improvers now upped in trip, none more so than The Same Again.

Won at Market Rasen last summer (good) for Rebecca Menzies and made an immediate impact for new yard at Kilbeggan last month, winning with plenty in hand over today's trip on softer ground; 9lb rise seems fair and quite likely more to come now on better ground.

Last win came in 2m4f Fairyhouse handicap hurdle in late 2015 when trained by Denis Hogan; ran well for long way on recent comeback run at Cork and no surprise if he took a step forward here.

Well-bred sort appreciated step up in trip on recent handicap debut when third to Running In Heels at Kilbeggan; going the right way and remains relatively unexposed so definitely one to consider.

Not discredited in a pair of decent quality maidens last autumn but hasn't progressed in both outings since, latest when staying on again late at Sligo; all those efforts at 2m so interesting now upped in distance and market could be interesting.

Well-supported to win Down Royal bumper last year but hasn't been able to reach the heights expected over hurdles and both handicap efforts were underwhelming; back from a break with blinkers fitted and not one to discount from a yard going well.

Went close a couple of times over hurdles last summer on good ground; two recent polytrack spins should have him spot on and one to consider though as yet unproven over this far.

In good form last summer, recording three seconds in a row before a wide-margin win over 3m at Wexford; twice held off 12lb higher mark subsequently and may just be that bit high in the handicap for now.

Lightly raced 6yo hinted at ability on first two starts but tailed off on last month's handicap debut at Ballinrobe (heavy); quite possible this better ground will suit but still a watching brief advised.

Majority of racing has been on heavy ground, pulled up at Limerick last time; better ground could see him in a different light and yard in such good form he can't be ruled out.

Veteran mare has never won beyond 2m5f but remains competitive off this sort of mark, finishing decent second at Fairyhouse; pulled up last month at Limerick but still deserves respect off this lowly mark.
