CRAFTY CODGER has rarely been beaten far and once again showed a good attitude with his staying-on effort behind Greanta in a Cork nursery. He gets the nod though Method In Madness has improved with each run and ran well behind Zarib three weeks ago, though whether he's up to carrying a big weight to victory on his handicap debut is another matter. Myamo makes her nursery debut but hasn't improved since a promising opening run at Bellewstown. Joseph O'Brien was on board when Mr Moondance was unplaced here a fortnight ago where his mount missed the break. Timothy Doyle's charge is one to keep an eye on along with the unexposed San Quentin, who also makes his nursery debut.
