FIREBIRD FLYER attempted to make all over a slightly longer trip at Limerick on Monday but had no answer when Castle Wings and two others passed him. He can take this as it looks easier and hopefully today's rider may use more restraint. Prince Of Diamonds looks a big threat as he made major improvement on previous form when stepped up in trip at Fairyhouse in a very strong maiden won by Toostrong. Winning point-to-pointer Sir Lynx made a fine start under Rules in a Fairyhouse bumper and will surely improve but Days Of Glory, who is approaching the veteran stage over hurdles, has yet to win in 24 career starts.
