Jolily had been threatening to win before getting off the mark at Thurles last month where he stayed on strongly to beat Cochise 2l. He's been raised 7lb but that shouldn't prove too much of a problem. Torremuelle pulled up in that event but has made great strides subsequently and had Cochise just over a length behind when scoring at Thurles a couple of weeks ago. THE BOSSES NEPHEW can take this as he had a run between the flags before returning to fences here last month and gaining a comfortable victory after a fine round of jumping. Sumkindasuprstar had Profit Margin 4l back when scoring here last month but was over 6l behind him at Fairyhouse next time and may be too high in the weights.
