Information is running well and almost defied a 7lb rise for his Roscommon success when close behind Benalma at Killarney. Pistol Jack ran his best race to date over fences at Kilbeggan though the fast ground may have been responsible for the improvement. Kilbane River hasn't won for a very long time and has dropped to a fair mark as a consequence and he holds Betheholygobbs and Lock Mor Lad on their run behind Hot Friend at Tipperary last time. PONMEWORD was having only his fourth start over fences and making his handicap debut when an excellent second to Borolee at Limerick and a 3lb rise doesn't look enough to prevent him gaining his first success.
