Coscorrig is better known as a chaser these days and though well handicapped over timber may just need the run. The Bull Hayes generally competes at a high level and will have needed his run on the Flat at Galway while Alderwood was conceding plenty of weight to Akinspirit when beating him over the C&D last month and should just about have his measure again. CLARACH has been raised 10lb for her easy victory at Galway but is progressing fast and should be good enough to defy the extra burden. Life Of Reilly is another improver though he has much more to do than when landing a Tipperary maiden.
