Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

SIN E SHEKELLS was much improved for a switch to handicaps when third at Leopardstown recently and the form has a solid look to it, so he's a confident selection to open his account despite a 4-lb rise. Ya Ya Baby and Take My Hand are a bit more exposed but also arrive in good order, so they're solid alternatives.
