Peter Fahey has acquired Tiger Bay Lady after she landed a point-to-point at Ballindenisk in May and she could be anything while Christy Roche' newcomer Open To The World has a real stayer's pedigree and is one to keep an eye on. POLISH PARTISAN is unfortunate not to have won over hurdles having come up against several in-form rivals including subsequent winner Icy Reply at Cork. He has to concede 8lb to Changeofluck, which won't be easy after the latter's close second at Downpatrick, but Barry Geraghty is taken to steer him home.
