LYNOTT was a length behind the winner Le Reveur at Clonmel a week ago but a 4lb pull may be enough to reverse the form and take this especially with a stronger pace likely. Yeoman, who was a very close fourth, could only stay on at one pace but is on a fair mark nowadays and should get competitive. Lus Na Hoiche was behind Lynott on the Flat at Navan in June but has looked better over hurdles and ran well behind Ikansea at Limerick last time. Korean, twice a winner over fences in France, has never won in 21 starts in Ireland but has dropped accordingly in the weights and ran reasonably well at Wexford and Tramore last month.
