This will take some winning on the testing ground and the victory of Florry Knox at Clonmel was gained on quicker going over a shorter trip. Lough Ferrib has a big weight to carry after his victory at Fairyhouse on Wednesday but he's in such good heart than a quick double is by no means out of the question. Sounds Of Thunder is consistent enough which is why the assessor can't drop him while Articilitis hasn't won since 2009 but has dropped to a low enough mark to make his presence felt. The lower the weight the better in this ground so SOLO WHISPER fits the bill having been noted staying on behind Florry Knox over 1m2f last time. He's still a maiden but won't get many better opportunities than this.
