Didn't He Do Well came good at Wexford but was earlier a long way behind Gracchus at Tipperary and the winner has scored on the Flat subsequently. Gimli's Rock has also been in very good form on the level and looks a very nice prospect over timber judging on his form to date but this is tough and conceding almost two stone to FEARNWOOD GIRL may be beyond him. Bryan Cooper's claim should be a big help as his mount bids to gain her third victory over timber and her novice success over Vivaldi at Sligo was a very good effort. In an open contest last week's Roscommon winner Save My Blushes is another with a strong chance.
