"The fact he had so much in hand that day means that a 9 lb rise may not be enough to stop him..."

Timeform on Crazyheart

Crazyheart - Wexford 18:50

Crazyheart showed improved form to record his first handicap success over half a mile shorter here last month, and he was value for much more than his three and a quarter length winning margin, too, and would have been more like a ten-length winner on the day if he hadn't been heavily eased towards the line. The fact he had so much in hand that day means that a 9 lb rise may not be enough to stop him, and he's taken to follow up at the expense of the consistent Ellie Mac.

Valentina Lady - Wexford 19:20

Although Valentina Lady was just denied on her debut at Naas last month, she created a really good impression that day, getting the hang of things late on and rattling home to get within two and a quarter lengths of the winner. She ought to be a lot more streetwise this time around with that initial run under her belt, and with more improvement to come, she's taken to get off the mark at the second time of asking.

Beau Warrior - Dundalk 20:15

Beau Warrior has nothing short of thrived since switching to this surface in November, completing a course four-timer after three months off last month. She's a likeable filly with a good attitude, and she looks to have good claims of confirming the form with Kafu and Festina Plente on these terms - who finished behind her in that order three weeks ago.
