Verdict
Oisin Orr is thriving at the moment and he looks an eye-catching booking on Gavin Cromwell's ARCHER'S UP here. The Archipenko gelding almost scored here on debut for the yard last season having won first time out on the AW at Dundalk. This might be the time to catch him, with his handicap mark now an appealing one. Recent AW winner Rockfish could well have more to offer while Royal Admiral will go close if transferrin his recent enthusiasm from that same arena. The likes of Magic Sea, Loudest Whisper and Paddytheirishman are worth a look from place terms.
