Fozzy Stack’s filly Hand on Heart has contested two Group 3 races this season, showing improved form from last term in the process. The step back up to a mile tonight should suit as she finished ahead of one of tonight’s opponents, Yulong Gold Fairy, on her seasonal debut over this trip. She gets weight from her main rivals and that could prove vital in her bid to win at Pattern level for the first time.
Walking On Glass looked as though he could run up a sequence based on his impressive performance in his first start in handicap company at Navan last month, but ran into a similarly unexposed type at Down Royal just six days later when finishing second. He’s turned out quickly here again, but off a very light weight, this race looks winnable from down near the bottom of the weights. Young apprentice Charlie O’Dwyer takes the mount as he looks to record his first-ever winner, on his only ride of the evening.
