BALLYOISIN has really got his act together of late and the Presenting gelding should make a bold bid in this afternoons Hilly Way Chase at Cork. Jumping lapses rather held Enda Bolger’s charge back as a novice but there has been notable improvement in that department in recent starts, and there was a lot to like about his second to Disko in a Grade 2 at Down Royal last month. That was over 2m4f but his overall form suggests he is equally effective over the minimum trip, and with race fitness on his side he ought to at the very least put it up to Un De Sceaux.
AA BEE SEE ultimately proved clear best of the rest in a race pinched by Icantsay at Navan four weeks ago and is taken to go one better in the 2m4f handicap hurdle at Punchestown. A useful dual purpose performer whose most recent victory came on the level at Fairyhouse in October, he has been raised 2lb for that latest effort but there is still a feeling - predominantly based on his easy Fairyhouse success in April - that he could have a bit up his sleeve in this discipline. 1pt win Aa Bee See, 1.30 Punchestown (5/2 general - BOG) 1pt win Ballyoisin, 2.20 Cork (4/1 general - BOG) 1pt win Coeur Joyeux – betting without Acapella Bourgeois, 3.05 (4/1 Skybet)
