The booking of Ruby Walsh for LILYWHITEDANCER looks very significant as he last rode him over two years ago when successful at Navan on heavy ground. The more rain the better for his mount who is looking on a fair mark nowadays and can take this. Coldstonesober beat Passage Vendome in a Tramore maiden three weeks ago and the runner-up hasn't let the form down while Tough Talkin Man made a valiant effort to lead all on the same track and was only caught in the dying strides by today's rival Magnetic Force, who is 3lb worse off. Mark Me Up ran a shocker when favourite at Cork though didn't enjoy stepping up to 2m3f and is better judged on his fine second to On My Own over today's trip previously. Really Unique has produced his best performances over further.
