Verdict

ROLLY BABY hasn't been seen since finishing runner-up to Jim Will Fix It in a Clonmel bumper over two years ago but the fact that he's been kept in training suggests he's well regarded. The winner won a Grade 2 bumper next time so the form is useful and Willie Mullins' charge can start making up for lost time. Follow The Sign was making his debut over timber when a very good third behind Way Up In The Air and that very good yardstick Champagne Agent at Punchestown. With further progress virtually guaranteed he'll be a threat to all. Time Please ran really well when runner-up to Goodtime Boy at Limerick in December but disappointed at Gowran a month later and will need to get back to that earlier form. Goal, five times a winner on the Flat in the UK, is now on his sixth trainer but showed nothing on his debut for Gordon Elliott at Fairyhouse. Enchanted Forest has run some fair races but may have to wait until sent over further to get on the scoresheet.
