WRONG WAY CORRIGAN is the obvious one here on his close-up second to Falcarragh at Wexford. The extra furlong will suit and he can open his account at the fourth time of asking ahead of Listowel second Whats Happening and the less exposed Ardo Boy. Bright Dawn showed promise on his debut at Tipperary, despite only beating one home, while Samantha Jones stayed on into fourth in a mares' bumper at Limerick last month but more would be needed here. Cara's Oscar is an interesting debutant but will almost certainly improve on whatever he achieves here.
