Do The Bookies ran well at Tramore last month and was fancied at Wexford a couple of weeks later but appeared to take off with his rider and was soon done with. He's better than that and easily holds Ta Blazes on that earlier run. The Gnathologist has won once in 18 starts over hurdles but has a definite chance on his most recent form though this will be his 18th race since reappearing in March and he may have had enough. Tyrone Tiger hasn't had much racing but showed a bit of potential on his handicap bow at Listowel and his trainer knows how to place his horses. SCHINDLER'S PEARL looked a decent prospect in the 2009/10 season but had over two years off before returning in June. He looked to be approaching his best at Cork last time and this looks a chance to get back on the winning trail. Chu Chu Thomas beat a huge field in a Cork bumper in May 2009 and didn't reappear until September where he ran well for a long way in a 2m4f maiden at Gowran. He makes his handicap debut and is one to note in the betting. Speed Dial just failed to catch Boleybawn Cat at Wexford last time and looks best of the remainder.
