EVERYTHING ZAIN has finished runner-up in his last five starts on the Flat and over hurdles and Dessie Hughes resorts to first-time blinkers in the hope that will do the trick. He's well enough treated and with Mark Enright claiming five he's taken to finally get off the mark. Diamond Pro stayed on strongly to score over a shorter trip at Killarney and is progressing enough to get competitive but Peinora ran poorly at Cork after a surprise victory over Jigalo at Tipperary. Liberty Love's only success came on Polytrack but Face Value will love the conditions and should make a bold bid under his big weight.
