LOUGHADERRA PRINCE can complete a last-race double for his rider. Alan Fleming's charge was heavily supported on his point-to-point debut a year ago and would have won but falling at the last then reappeared to finish a close third on heavy going in a Listowel bumper last month. Providing he handles the quicker ground he should take care of the consistent but limited Glendine River, who once again couldn't find a finishing burst when a close fourth at Punchestown. The remainder with experience have shown nothing so newcomers Champagne Harmony and River Dun look better options.
