Winning bumper O Maonlai had no problems losing his maiden tag at Fairyhouse where he beat a huge field of maidens in impressive fashion. He can go well again but the progressive GETOUTWHENYOUCAN defied a 10lb rise for a victory here with another comfortable success at Thurles. He has another 10lb to contend with but A P McCoy can steer him to a hat-trick. Cassells Rock couldn't cope with Divine Rhapody at Down Royal so connections won't be pleased with a 4lb rise but Somethingwonderful has shown ability over further and the drop in trip should suit. Barneys Honour has been chasing without much success and probably needs further than this over hurdles.
