Bankroll went up a massive 13lb for scoring at Limerick last month and was unable to cope with the extra behind Olfa at Leopardstown on Sunday. Three Way Stretch ran well in fourth that day but he's hardly the most consistent of performers and hasn't won since 2008. Independent Girl has a chance from her lowly mark and she will enjoy the conditions but GLOR NA MARA looks capable of gaining his first success on turf. Jim Bolger's colt took an age to get off the mark, which he did at Dundalk in November but then ran a very good race over 6f at the Curragh's opening meeting last month. He found 1m2f much too far at Leopardstown three days later and this looks his best trip.
