The four-year-old RENNETI gets the age allowance and that, plus his superb effort in the Grade 1 Royal Bar at Fairyhouse behind The Tullow Tank, suggests he's well up to beating his elders. The winner's trainer is represented by Real Steel, runner-up in two bumpers before making most and staying on very strongly to beat Crystal Earth at Cork. Aerlite Supreme, a winner over the minimum trip at Galway, hasn't done quite as well over further subsequently and though Mazuri Cowboy won at this meeting a year ago it was over fences. Flycorn was beaten 17l when runner-up at Fairyhouse last month.
