This may not take too much winning so Charlie Swan's newcomer THE RAMBLIN KID may be good enough. He's a half-brother to the high-class Riverside Theatre amongst others and out of a very useful hurdler and can make a winning start to his career. Aerlite Supreme has done nothing wrong in his two bumper starts and looks an obvious threat but Colgrave Sound was a bit disappointing at Thurles last month and will need to do better. Quarterpastsix ran her best race to date in very testing conditions at Listowel in September so she'll have conditions to suit.
