Benrouge hasn't run since a very good second to Dibdabs at Tramore in April and tackles faster ground for the first time. Patsio showed potential behind Wicklow Brave and his trainer is very adept in this sphere while Ballintotty Boy showed promise on his debut behind Ange Balafre at Roscommon. Harvey Logan has to enter calculations after a very encouraging start in heavy ground at Limerick as he clipped heels and slipped up on his only subsequent start. NO CASH FLOW was beaten a head on his debut at Roscommon in August and a length in what looked a tougher race won by Toe The Line at Listowel last month. Compensation awaits Henry De Bromhead's charge here.
