Way Wild West definitely improved in very testing conditions at Thurles last month and would appreciate more rain. Lets High Five It attempted to make all at Gowran but was collared at the two furlong mark and could only stay on at one pace. Bentelimar, who finished just in front, had previously run in two races over hurdles so may not confirm the form. Tt's Star is likely to be all the rage on his debut as he's the first foal of a prolific winning mare but he could be a false price and Eddie Harty's newcomer ENUMERATER is taken to gain another success for his dam, who has already produced numerous winning bumpers and hurdlers.
