SUPER SAY made his belated racecourse debut in May this year and got off the mark in a maiden at Cork two runs later. An excellent third in a tough handicap on fast ground at the Curragh on his latest start, Andrew Oliver's four-year-old is 3lb higher in the weights here but is open to plenty of improvement and gets the nod. Wexford winner Hedaaya has been off the track since finishing runner-up over 1m2f here in June but has to come into the reckoning if fully tuned-up on her return and the same applies to Jim Bolger's Toraidhe, who showed some promise at the start of the season but has not raced since April.
