Words Of Wisdom just failed in his hat-trick attempt at Gowran and though he's gone up another 4lb it will be a surprise if he isn't competitive. Buccaneer Bob looked progressive before a disappointing run at Fairyhouse in June and has been given the summer off but Denny Crane is probably better over slightly further, though he has won three times here. Un Hinged has returned from jumping in fine shape and is reasonably treated though he's only ever run once here in a long career, but a chance is taken with SOLO PERFORMER. Harry Rogers' charge ran a shocker at Navan on Wednesday but that was on testing ground and he's much more at home on this surface as his three victories here suggest. The stable also run Elusive Ridge who is in better form but still looking a few pounds high in the weights.
