PAT GARRETT will need to get his jumping act together but if staying upright can make amends for his fall at Ballinrobe on Tuesday when travelling very well in the lead he fell at the second last. This looks easier and compensation awaits though any further mishaps could hand the verdict to Old Supporter, a winner at Wexford in July and an excellent second to Blaze Of Fire at Killarney last month. Alright Benny won twice between the flags but has yet to make his mark over the bigger obstacles so it could be One Fine Morning who is more of a threat as he'll love the fast ground and is virtually guaranteed to get round.
