The Sportsman's Verdict
LINGER returned to winning ways over 1m6f at Gowran last time out and even though the assessor has handed him a 13lb rise, there could be more to come on his second start for Joseph O'Brien. Mountain Fox is fitted with first-time cheekpieces after rattling the crossbar over 1m3f at Limerick last month and is the one expected to put up most resistance. Alcander is no forlorn hope for a place off his present perch either.
