Dessie Hughes has been unable to find an opening for LIPINSKI but she won't get a better chance than this. Her recent placed efforts at Leopardstown and Thurles are the best pieces of form on view and, with her rider's claim taken into account, she's receiving 22lb from The Mooch. The latter landed a summer bumper here on fast going and made a promising start over hurdles at Listowel before pulling too hard at Clonmel. Ontopoftheworld ran well for a long way on his hurdling bow at Thurles and a better round of jumping could see him in the frame while the lightly-raced newcomer Muntasaf, narrowly beaten in both starts on the Flat in heavy ground, is one to keep an eye on in the betting.
