Never Enough Time has steadily made progress and landed a Cork maiden in good style, though this is a very tough ask. Ferdy Murphy is a rare visitor these days so the presence of Chavoy, who has thrived since arriving at West Witton from France, suggests he means business. Brian Who was gaining only his second victory when scoring at Fairyhouse but he's been running well all winter and an 8lb rise shouldn't prevent another big effort. Rawnaq has definitely improved recently and followed a cracking run over this track and trip with a close second on the Flat at Leopardstown. Art Lord was a surprise but convincing winner of a Navan maiden but a chance is taken with the four-year-old HAZARIBAN. He's been progressing with every run and there was much to like about his comfortable victory in an all-aged handicap at Navan earlier this month.
