Polly Douglas is riding the crest of a wave at present and she may not be done with yet, ut the image of DUCKY MALLON flashing home at Naas recently still burns brightly and it was a run which suggests he should be back in the winner's circle before long. Palavicini Run, Tribal Path, and Club Wexford should also go well. [Shay Howard]

Sprouted wings in the dying strides to get up and collar Enter The Red (levels) on the line over 5f here recently; past 6f not much to write home about but has gone well over 7f and looks ready to build on past efforts; 4lb rise looks surmountable.

Seven victories, the latter of which on final start of 2016 when winning at Bellewstown (1m) in July; entitled to be a lot sharper for recent comeback run at same, but looks plenty high enough in the handicap; Smullen a notable booking.

Hat-trick up for the season when bouncing back from a below par run at Naas to shade the verdict in a thriller at Navan latest, with Ducky Mallon (gave 18lb) 2.25l back in sixth and Ice Cold In Alex (gave 17lb) 2.5l away in seventh; thriving and a big player off this handy weight.

All three wins over 7f; ten rolls of the dice over today's trip without hitting the mark, although has promised to do so, including when narrowly denied behind Bubbly Bellini here last year; comes here in good spirits and despite burden of top weigh, a big run likely.
