Derrinlanna makes a quick reappearance after her second to King High over 2m4f at Sligo on Sunday and is likely to appreciate this longer trip. Ocean Bright had the form of her shock victory over Your Busy at Bellewstown well and truly boosted when the runner-up landed a better race at Killarney on Wednesday. She's hardly consistent and an 8lb rise makes this tougher but in that kind of mood would take some beating. However, JABUS won with such authority at Downpatrick that even an 11lb rise may not prevent a follow-up in similar conditions as he was eased right down in the closing stages. Miss Penny Pincher has twice been placed behind the well handicapped Cerveza Dinero recently and should make a bold bid to lose her maiden tag over hurdles.
