LORD OF ISENAY showed potential in three runs over the minimum trip last year and improved again on his first start for a year at Ballinrobe a couple of weeks ago where he also appeared suited by 2m4f on fast going. He can progress further and take care of Lilly The Lioness, who has done better since being stepped up in trip on her two latest starts. Zemario reverts to hurdling after a cracking effort behind Timjoe on the Flat at Ballinrobe on Tuesday and in that kind of form has to be taken seriously but I Am Great may find this on the short side.
