FormscanBy Gary Carson - RATTLE AND HUM may be worth another shot here despite finishing last in a sales race at the Curragh last time out. The New Bay colt had shaped with promise on his debut at Galway, when a staying on third to Evening's Empire after meeting traffic, and was well backed into favouritism that day. Dropping back to six probably wasn't ideal last time and he was eased when his chance had gone. Over a mile now he should be capable of a better showing. Ard Mhacha sets the standard here with an official mark of 74. He weakened tamely enough at Naas last time but had been third on his two previous outings and commands respect on that form. It's interesting that Colin Keane rides Shangrilama from the two Noel Meade runners. She has a nice weight in this and stayed on well when fourth over a furlong shorter at Down Royal on her most recent start.
