The sight of Plinth carrying top weight rather gives this competitive handicap a lopsided look to it and it might well be that those towards the bottom of the page are capable of taking centre stage. The two that make most appeal at the prices having proven they both go really well around this tight track are DO TRY DOLLY (best price 14/1)
and SUPREME VINNIE (best price 6/1)
, and they should be backed accordingly. The former has a terrific record at this venue – as form figures of 2114 testify – and although she’s arguably better over the minimum trip, she has enough solid performances over further to ease the mind on that score. Providing the ground stays on the fast side, the daughter of Millenary has a decent chance of outrunning her odds for local connections.
Although the latter has a bit to find with Princely Conn on their Punchestown clash, there’s a decent chance that Denise O’ Shea’s inmate could turn the tables around with his old rival racing at a track that clearly suited his run-style the last day. Having a struck up a fair partnership with the very useful lady conditional Rachel Blackmore of late, the son of Vinnie Roe can make full use of his feather weight.
