Some Benefit has disappointed so far over fences and reverted to hurdling with a poor run at Ballinrobe last month. Roisin Dubh is generally consistent and was running really well in the spring, scoring at Clonmel in May. She unshipped her rider on her chasing bow at Listowel but has since performed with credit on the Flat. SILVER CHIEF was conceding 5lb to the winner in that hurdle race at Clonmel and wasn't beaten far. She's definitely made progress in her two latest starts and her close second to Shake The Bucket on fast going at Wexford should be good enough for this. The remainder look to have it all to do to get involved.
