Third in a 1m2f claimer at Fairyhouse on only start for Ger Lyons; some positives to take from his recent handicap debut at Gowran (1m1f), going down by 10l; bit to find with Jawhary on that run.

Verdict

Despite an outside draw it could pay to keep the faith with ANGEL ON FIRE, a C&D winner who comes here on he back of two good runs in defeat behind an improver. Boadicea Belle, The Bog Bank and Tall Story head the list of likely dangers. [Alan Hewison]
