Golden Plan didn't appear to stay 3m1f at Musselburgh and has run his best races at around this trip. He should get into the frame but it's about time KERRIEONVIC was winning. His narrow defeat by Don Poli in heavy going at Thurles is comfortably the best form on view and this looks his chance. Winning point-to-pointer Outlawed Tunes made an encouraging start over timber at Thurles where he stayed on well over the 2m2f trip. Casino Markets landed a point-to-point a year ago and though not showing much under Rules there should be more to come while Phil The Flyer has shown potential on occasions and could prove best of the remainder.
