Ruby Walsh has just two booked rides today and one of them, FALSE ECONOMY, can get him off to a winning start. Michael Hourigan's charge made a winning start over fences when beating Four Commanders at Limerick and finished third in a Grade 1 at Fairyhouse in April. A recent run on the Flat will have put him straight and he looks a nice chasing prospect. Out Now is a cracking chaser who has won twice over fences but has put in two exceptional performances on his last two starts. Runner-up to Seabass in a Grade A handicap at Leopardstown in January, he then occupied the same spot in the Irish National at Fairyhouse. He'd be a good bet over a longer trip here and is warming up for a crack at the Galway Plate. Great Oak is progressing well and made Raptor pull out the stops at Wexford and the former Killarney winner Kotkidy returns after a spell in France where he scored on very heavy ground.
