The Last Leg improved on his Newcastle debut at Kelso in May. Callaghy Beauty has to be of interest given connections but this can go to FAGAN, who was only beaten four lengths in a point-to-point at Taylorstown in May and is a half-brother to a couple of winners under Rules. Mr Burgess has also shown promise in point-to-points and should give a good account.
