Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - The dams of Speckled Wood and second reserve, Penny Opera, aren't long about grabbing the attention, that pair being the top racemares, Like-A-Butterfly and Opera Hat. You can keep an eye on the likes of those with the future in mind, but with regards to this assignment WINGTIPS is probably the obvious way to go. With a rating of 138 a maiden win for this grey should be a mere formality. It would have happened for him last time at Fairyhouse if he'd not encountered traffic difficulties and the Grade 1 placed son of High Chaparral should erase memories of that now. Winner of a bumper over the course and distance, Another Challenge is a nice type but he falls down on the score of experience. Patriots Vision made a pleasing start to his racing life at Galway last month and he could challenge for minor honours here. Given his connections, it would be foolish to dismiss Sizing Sahara but he needs to show a lot more on his hurdling bow. Goodoldhonkytonk is surely better than she showed last time and Henry de Bromhead said of her in an Irish Field stable tour: "She is a lovely mare and was just chinned in a Roscommon bumper first time out. She will go for a four-year-old fillies' bumper at Cork in November (finished 11th the same day as the Cork National) and hopefully she'll pick up a bumper before she goes over hurdles. She could be really nice." Goodoldhonkytonk will need to be really nice to take this but she's one to monitor nonetheless.
