Timeform on Everlastingpromise

Everlastingpromise - 14:15 Thurles

Everlastingpromise was an impressive winner under a change of tactics at Clonmel last time, where he made all the running and pulled clear from two out to win by a wide margin. He jumped boldly and is relatively unexposed over fences so remains open to plenty of improvement.

Something Sweet - 16:30 Thurles

Something Sweet has been in good form of late, following up a second at Listowel with creditable third-place finishes at Navan and Clonmel. She found the test at Clonmel barely adequate, so the return to this trip will be more suitable and may eke out some improvement. She will also have the assistance of Davy Russell in the saddle.

Bombay Blue - 17:05 Thurles

Bombay Blue produced a promising effort when second to a much more experienced rival on debut, impressing with the smooth headway he made to get into contention. The Noel Meade-trained five-year-old is expected to build on that performance and should be difficult to beat. The Bosses Oscar (Gordon Elliott) and Flash (Liz Doyle) represent yards with good bumper records and look the pick of the newcomers.
