A very poor turnout but that won't concern Gordon Elliott whose TOM'S ARTICLE looks the likely winner. He hasn't been seen since a fair effort at Fairyhouse in December and hopefully the faster ground will enable him to get off the mark. Inchivara fell at the first on his hurdling debut last month and hadn't shown much previously in bumpers and point-to-points while Double Infinity has been well beaten since a promising debut on heavy going at Limerick in March. Raknruin was engaged at Sligo yesterday and along with Indian Whiskey is best noted in the market.
