According To Lizzy ran very well in a Fairyhouse handicap before pulling up on heavy ground at Gowran. Lastofthepilots won a Limerick bumper and has run reasonably in both starts over timber but it's THE AMARILLO KID who is given the nod. A winning point-to-pointer and bumper, he's been going well over trips too short and today's 3m looks just what he needs to gain his first success over timber. Another winner between the flags, Cnoc Seoda, ran easily his best race over hurdles at Navan last time and a repeat would definitely see him in the mix.
