Tulsa Jack made his debut in April and didn't reappear until three weeks ago where he wasn't beaten far by Montys Meadow at Cork. He'll have come on for that and should be in the shake-up but he was behind CLOUNTS MEADOWS and Garri Rua in that Cork even and, as the former was making his racecourse debut there's no reason why he shouldn't confirm the form and take this. Ballagh made a reasonable start behind the useful Rathvinden at Cork last month while the betting should tell us more about Lord Adare, a half-brother to a couple of winners.
