This doesn't look the best of betting mediums but SHERCO SPORTS is probably improving fast enough to defy a 7lb rise for a comfortable success at Sligo and it's about time his rider, who has won six times in bumpers, was gaining his first success over timber. Jane Mangan's presence on board Quiverhill Dreamon will ensure support and her mount showed much improved form on fast ground at Cork last time so has to enter the reckoning. Lets Go Sunshine was having his first start for two years when an excellent third to Miaranour at Down Royal last month and it will be a surprise if Colin Bowe's charge isn't involved at the business end. Dessie Hughes tries Tales Of Milan in a visor after a couple of one-paced efforts on quick ground.
