GREEN THIRTY TWO has a 12lb hike in the weights to contend with after scoring at Ballinrobe. But he should cope with the drop back in trip and gets a speculative vote in a wide-open race. He'd earlier beaten Limpopo Tom and the latter went on to score at Cork with Bridgequarter Girl and another couple of these behind. The Black Russian had finished well behind the selection before landing a double and was engaged to run here yesterday while Vinniespride finally opened his account with a maiden hurdle win last time. Magnetic Force, Six Stone Ned and Coolmill are others to consider.
