TIMI ROLI has to concede weight all round but should be capable of doing so. He produced an impressive all-the-way victory at Tipperary a fortnight ago and though that was over 2m4f he was always travelling supremely well. His stable companion Royal Hawk had been racing over fences in France and that's where his future lies though he had the pace to win over hurdles at this trip at Cork before finding Twobeelucky too strong at Bellewstown. Le Richebourg looks a big threat after a very easy debut victory over timber here in May where he was always going well but the remaining pair look to have a bit to do.
