TYRONE TIGER has become something of a professional bridesmaid having placed over two and three miles in his last two outings and it's hoped that he can gain some compensation on his first attempt at this trip. Wexford winner, Tipped Up Harry is tried in first time hood having disappointed at Fairyhouse last month and he could be thereabouts if it works the oracle. War Of Words won a maiden point at Lisronagh and Denis Ahern's gelding produced his best effort under Rules when second in a similar race at Clonmel on Tuesday. Make It Better won a hunters contest at the course last year, while Vincent Row shaped with promise in a Punchestown bumper on debut and the market should be checked on his first foray into handicaps.
