It may prove wise to concentrate on those with assured fitness, but one who must be noted very carefully in the market is BANG PO. He only had three runs as a juvenile and showed definite ability on his final heavy-ground start when a respectable Curragh fourth over six. Now down to the minimum trip, he can only improve and a mark of 67 looks more than feasible. He's a chance worth taking. The ultra-consistent Not Too Real Bad - a Dundalk scorer when last seen in January - looks best of those with winter form although he remains relatively unproven on the grass. He should go well though, whilst Senado Square showed considerable improvement at Dundalk last month and should be in the mix again along with The Stray Sod and Redshore City, both fit from winter runs for John McConnell.
