ZANE GREY made a promising start over fences at Downpatrick, eventually finishing fourth after getting outpaced on the turn for home. A winner over hurdles at Wexford in July, he'll know more today and should open his account over the larger obstacles. Caddy Man came through the hunter chase ranks and was second in a beginners' chase at Clonmel in February. He may be capable of picking up a minor contest but Coldstonesober has gone backwards this summer. Golden Ticket is another with plenty to prove at present but Sligo sixth Classic Event may be capable of better.
