FLEMENSTAR has his first run for Tony Martin after his transfer from Peter Casey. He'll find this on the short side but three Grade 1 victories, including the John Durkan over Sir Des Champs, emphasise his quality and this should be straightforward. Realt Mor also has a victory at the highest level to his credit when beating Dedigout at Fairyhouse and is no forlorn hope to create a surprise with fitness guaranteed. Days Hotel is best suited of the trio to today's trip having won Grade 2's at Punchestown and Cork so his presence makes this an interesting little contest.
