FormscanBy Mark Nunan - A modest maiden and, even though he's had plenty of chances, RICK DALTON is chosen to finally make the breakthrough. He was beaten no more than a half a length when runner-up on three occasions for Ger Lyons and ran creditably at Listowel last week on his first start for Cian Collins. He's entitled to be fitter for that run having been off since early summer and Colin Keane knows him very well. He'll handle the ground but his stamina for this trip is a slight concern. Indigo Five, fourth in a Listowel handicap over 1m, has a fair bit to find on ratings but the daughter of Fast Company will relish testing ground and stepping back up in trip should be to her advantage. Three-time hurdles winner Penny Jar and heavy-ground bumper winner Chautuaqua, placed over hurdles at Listowel after a lay-off, would ordinarily be opposable over this trip but conditions bring them into calculations.
