To The Sky, a close runner-up in a Punchestown maiden in May, has won on the Flat subsequently and looks certain to go well though he's up against a couple of smart looking recruits. Ally Cascade made a promising start at Tipperary in April and easily defied a long absence by taking a Fairyhouse bumper a fornight ago after being bought by Gigginstown Stud. He should have a bright future, a remark that also applies to JEZKI. Jessica Harrington's charge won two Leopardstown bumpers before a fair effort in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham and a recent run on the Flat will have put him spot on to make a winning debut over timber. The remainder look to have plenty to do to get involved.
