Gordon Elliott's former point-to-point winner Lady Rinawa was engaged in the 5.25 at Wexford yesterday and her performance should be monitored. Tawny Pipit and Alottahoney were also due to run in the same race. ARDNAVALLEY looked to be progressing nicely when runner-up to Waterloo Chateau over 2m4f at Roscommon and she appeared to find 2m6f too far at Kilbeggan on her only subsequent start. This can prove her optimum trip and she can take this as Benefit Of Porter has to concede 8lbs for his victory in a Tramore bumper though he ran well when a close second at Sligo last time.
