Verdict

It's no surprise to see Paul Rothwell striking while the iron is red hot with SAOIRSE DUN as he'll be raised by more than the 4lb extra he has to carry for his victory on heavy ground over this trip at Thurles last week. He didn't have things all his own way that day or when he beat today's rival Lascalahall at Thurles previously and the latter is weighted to turn the tables. However, he's since run poorly and it will be a surprise if he can turn the tables. Reality Dose has returned from a spell between the flags to run well at Thurles and Gowran so Liz Doyle's charge has a fair chance of making the frame under Barry Geraghty.
