Castle Wings had some decent form in bumpers and is related to plenty of winning jumpers but it's about time WORLDLY WISE was losing his maiden tag over timber. Patrick Flynn's charge has been called a few names and finishing runner-up six times isn't flattering but he did nothing wrong against the potentially useful Black Benny at Listowel last time and is given another chance. Winning point-to-pointer Farrells Fancy made a very promising start over hurdles when just touched off by Last Instalment at Limerick in April but that was over 2m4f and this may be on the short side. Imperial Joey is also better over further while Sea Of Thunder may just need this after a long break, though the market is best watched.
