SECOND GLANCE was conceding stablemate Long Wait 19lb when just touched off at Roscommon before scoring very easily over timber. He should have few problems with Long Wait this time and gets the nod ahead of Sparring Partner, third in that Roscommon event and looking held. Foildearg looks a big threat judged on his impressive victory at Ballinrobe and though that was on fast going he won a bumper in very testing conditions. Binocular has been dropped 3lb after a reasonable run behind Golan Go at Tramore and is another who can make his presence felt.
