Effernock Lad has run his best races to date with some cut in the ground and was well beaten on his only start on fast going. He could do with some rain so it's LORD OF ISENAY who looks the one to be on. He's performed well on quick ground in the past and was probably feeling the effects of an earlier fall when disappointing at Limerick last month. The Cub has been chasing and that's where his future lies but Tight Times should be respected as he found soft ground against him at Galway after a better run on fast going at Roscommon.
