WAKE UP EARLY had shown virtually nothing before landing a nice touch over this track and trip last month and though it didn't look much of a race and he has an 8lb rise to overcome this isn't much tougher. Island Master was beaten 18l in that race but was in touch when badly impeded and should get much closer. Our Bonus has never won a race but looked likely to do so when falling 2 out at Downpatrick and should make a bold bid to finally get off the mark as Daisy Chicks has been beaten several times off this mark. Duhallow Paddy is another maiden under Rules whose best run was over 3m1f at Wexford in April, form that would give him a chance here.
