Verdict

There were plenty of scorched fingers when WINGTIPS was beaten by Blacklough at Fairyhouse a fortnight ago but there appeared to be genuine excuses and compensation awaits. Tony Martin's charge was a 2/9 chance that day, which isn't surprising as he was a close third in the Champion Four-Year-Old at Punchestown in April, but he was badly impeded at the last and couldn't make up the ground. Another Challenge could prove troublesome as he made all for a very convincing victory in a bumper here in February and is bred for this job while Patriots Vision overcame colliding with the running rail at the start on his debut at Galway to stay on nicely at the finish. Sizing Sahara looks as though he needs more experience but Goodoldhonkytonk, while disappointing when strongly fancied at Cork, is much better than that as he showed on his debut at Roscommon.
