There might be more to come from Twice Returned now tackling fences. Thanks For Coming is a decent performer on his day and a recent absence shouldn't be a problem while Ifyousayso and Farbreaga are both chasing hat-trick, though have climbed the weights recently and the latter may struggle to confirm recent running with Dunlough Bay. LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN races off a lower mark than over hurdles and has plenty of stamina. He makes his chasing debut today but will have been well schooled and McCoy will give him every assistance from the saddle. De Blacksmith has shown some promise and should be winning soon, though may need his sights lowering.
