CALL VINNIE was purchased for €90,000 after an impressive victory between the flags at Templemore and can make a successful debut under Rules. Lucky Pat had no answer to the odds-on Totally Dominant at Punchestown but it was a much improved run and further progress would see him in the frame. Princely Conn has shown some promise but hasn't been seen since March and Flight Plan has an even longer absence to overcome as he last ran on very testing ground at Punchestown in February where he made What Lies Ahead pull out the stops and the winner has scored again. Our Dougal could prove best of the remainder.
