Nantucket Bay has had little experience and though landing a Navan maiden on his second start that has turned out to be a poor event. The other three-year-old SADDLER'S ROCK, stayed on strongly to land what looked a decent maiden at Tipperary and though he would undoubtedly appreciate some rain he looks progressive and gets the vote. False Economy had been going well over hurdles before scoring over the C&D in May and a 5lb rise shouldn't prevent another big effort and Solo Performer ran very well over a trip too short at Fairyhouse last week, his first start since December.
