Verdict

Our Ollie is on a fair mark though he's never won a race and has been chasing. Ocean Glandore had started at huge odds in his first three races and never shown but attracted some support in a Ballinrobe maiden and duly obliged. He's not too badly treated for his handicap bow and should get into the frame but PENNYS TUNE appears a more likely winner. She's returned to action this season in very good form and followed two second???? CHECK THIS places with her first ever victory on fast ground at Downpatrick, form that should be good enough for this despite a 6lb hike in the weights. Kilmainham was in quite good form on soft ground in the spring so could do with plenty of rain.
