J: Miss A B O’Connor

Only narrowly denied in her last two starts including when beaten a nose when dropped back to this trip at Tramore last month; the winner didn't do much for the form subsequently but she's only up 2lb and her rider has more experience than most of her rivals.

Two wins came back-to-back in the summer of 2021; handicap mark has remained steady enough as she remains consistent; close fourth when slightly hampered at Punchestown last time over 1m1f; big run would not surprise.

Verdict

Top-weight Beautiful Chaos deserves a change of luck, and others of interest include the returning Our Dickie if he gets the trip. It is hard to oppose high class chaser FINAL ORDERS who won off 59 here in July and should be well capable of coping with a 9lb penalty. [Justin O’Hanlon]
