OVER CHURCH ROAD ran well here in May and produced another fine effort at Down Royal last time. She's ready to lose her maiden tag and this looks a first-class opportunity. The Finger Post fell in both starts between the flags but has shown enough promise in bumpers to suggest he will be winning races over jumps but winning point-to-pointer Kylecrue didn't look at home on fast ground over timber at Bellewstown on Sunday.
