End of Line, rated 89 on the Flat for Andrew Balding, is an interesting newcomer but he'll do well to see off ROCONGA, a winning bumper and a close second behind Portmore Lough over timber at Kilbeggan last weekend. Pashtunwali won a Killarney bumper in July and ran well for a long way on his hurdling bow there last Saturday but Icantsay has been racing over much further. Red Jacket started favourite at Ballinrobe earlier this month and didn't run badly though he'll need more here.
