In depth


Jack Hackett, a winning point-to-pointer and bumper, has failed to fire over hurdles and may need further. Marine One, who is by Frankel, was having only his second start over timber when chasing home Tara Dylan over 2m2f here last month and normal progress can see him go close. Ya Boy Ya, a dual winner between the flags, made a successful bumper debut at Downpatrick last month and looks certain to get involved though the vote goes to COCOHULABABY. Noel Meade's filly had little chance against the long odds-on Quartz Du Rheu at Tramore but stayed on gamely and won't meet anything of that one's class here.
