STOP THE CLOCK has been going well and led for most of the way until collared late by Usa at Ballinrobe. Compensation awaits here as that was only his sixth career start. Florimund generally does better over longer trips but Mia's Vic easily won a novice hurdle over the course and distance in August on very heavy ground and looks a threat with conditions now in his favour. Tin Town Boy looks a danger as he gained his only hurdles success over this track and trip and has also scored on the Flat here. Tony Martin has the bottom two in the weights and given Ruby Walsh's record for the yard Lancing may come out best over Gentle Aussie.
