The presence of JT McNamara on UPTON OLA might just swing things the way of Mick Hourigan's progressive five-year-old as he was on board when his mount scored at Templemore early this month. Mikey O'Connor has some great rides today and the hat-trick seeking Our Girl Lucy is amongst them as she has landed some nice bets when scoring recently. A Little Swifter landed a maiden point in good style at Cloyne but this is much tougher but Venture To War beat a huge field at Lisronagh on his debut last month and is one for the short-list. Manogue Supreme is another who looks destined for better things after a convincing success at Largy.
