OUR COBAJAY didn't show much on his debut but improved to finish a god third behind Thunder And Roses at Naas and should take this for Katie Walsh. Kaki Island wasn't beaten too far in what looked a strong race at Ludlow a month ago and should do better while Coin Bowe does well with ex point-to-pointers so recent Ballydarragh winner Marley Exit is one to note. The market should provide clues to the remainder.
