FANTASY KING is saddled with a penalty for his Flat victories but if he runs up to the form of his latest effort behind Curley Bill at Cork then this is his for the taking. Expressaninterest has been making steady progress and there was plenty to like about his run over the course and distance last time and Vinnies Pride has also been performing well on this track though a slightly longer trip may suit. Bunty Lawless ran poorly at Tramore after a much better run on very fast ground at Wexford.
