Cool Klan has shown plenty of potential but didn't jump well at Wexford and paid the price. Run For Firth, a triple point-to-point winner, was engaged to run at Cork last night with a good chance so that result should be monitored. SILVER TASSIE almost made all on fast ground at Wexford but a last-flight error let Top Cat Henry in. He's on the upgrade and this looks his chance to lose his maiden tag. The penalised Private Story has yet to shine in Ireland after transferring from the UK.
