FARANADOONEY has been extremely busy all year but hasn't managed a victory. His latest run at Thurles suggests he's ready to score again and he can take this very moderate contest. He Is Top Class ran very well over this course and distance last month but not so good at Thurles a couple of weeks later. Roman Numeral hasn't quite managed to make progress from his victory at Cork in March though still has time on his side but Charging Indian has been inconsistent and is still a maiden over hurdles after 16 starts.
