PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Fabulous Eight has followed up a C&D win over Kinda Cool with clear-cut seconds once each behind Winning Dreamer and Sparkling Knight carrying 131 pounds. He can go one better with a key move to a 10-pound claimer. Super Lucky followed up an overdue win over the Valley 1,200m with a closing second and two OK efforts from wide gates. He's the race sleeper in his initial start over the straight 1,000m. Comfort Life needs to be taken on trust on his bad antics at the start but has worked home well to figure in the mix in his past three C&D runs, including a second behind rival Dublin Star, and can't be written off. Dublin Star got up for an overdue win two back over this C&D and kept on for third to Sparking Knight latest but without excuses carrying more weight. He's a place chance.
