ZEST FOR LIFE won this in 2010, fell a year later and finished third last season. He looks as though he's been prepared to perfection after a fine effort over a trip too short at Cork and can take it again. Enda Bolger also runs Near Perfection, four times a winner between the flags but pulled up on his only start over regulation fences at Limerick. Mount Sion, another Bolger entry, fell when in the lead last year though there was a long way to go. He subsequently landed a maiden hunters race at Downpatrick and Derek O'Connor is an eye-catching booking. Keep On Track is yet another entry from the yard and Katie Walsh is entrusted with the ride on the Dromahane point-to-point winner. Send For Paddy has won ten times between the flags and gained his first success under Rules in a maiden hunters event at Downpatrick three weeks ago. Peter Maher won this a year ago but Enniskillen is still a maiden after a dozen starts though still looks better than Exit Legs It.
