GOLD NOT SILVER has never won a race but he's only five and his last two runs point to his chances. Davy Russell can steer him to his debut success as though Western Man is consistent enough he's only won once in 27 starts under Rules. It's two years since Paco Jack won a race but he's much better treated than over fences while Court Jester's only victory so far came over this track and trip and he looks on the way back to form judging on his last two runs. Maple Valley Gold has really found his form in the past few weeks, scoring between the flags at Maralin then landing a maiden hurdle at Downpatrick. He unshipped his rider on his chasing debut at Limerick in December but is progressing and could be well treated on a mark of 97.
