Not the best of bumpers to finish off a fine card and a chance is taken with BIG GENERATOR, who would probably have made a winning point-to-point debut at Inch in April but for a last-fence fall. Noel Meade has won this several times so Monksland, who ran out when challenging at the last on his debut at Ballysteen in May, will probably provide a threat. Play The Market showed a little promise at Punchestown and should improve while Lough Roe Lady produced easily her best run to date on that track last month and is an obvious threat if staging a repeat.
