Johnny Lynch is almost certain to improve on his debut fifth at Leopardstown in June and is one for the short-list in this opener. Write To Me has hinted at ability, though Kevin Manning prefers stablemate Whip Storm, while Silky Pyrus was very slowly away and ran green on debut at Limerick and will know more today. Last month's Gowran third Janna's Jingle should also get better as she gains experience but we'll give another chance to TRULY DELIGHTFUL, who had Write To Me behind at Roscommon earlier this month when third to Uleavemebreathless. The second has gone close again since so the form looks decent.
