Waylander has now had ten starts in bumpers without winning and though he's gone close on several occasions he looks vulnerable. You Can't Catch Me has been struggling to go the pace on fast ground and though this longer trip should help a softer surface may be required. Outcast was behind that pair at Tramore last time but that was his first run and with improvement likely he may be able to reverse the form. OLD CASTLETOWN has been steadily progressing and though unable to catch Time For A Pint here last time further improvement can see him gain his first success.
