Watching brief

THE Boylesports Michael Purcell Novice Hurdle at Thurles next Thursday has attracted a superb entry. Conor O'Dwyer's three-time winner Folsom Blue tops the page, with Dessie Hughes' Lyreen Legend a potential pointer to the Cheltenham-bound Boston Bob and Monksland.

However, few would be more intriguing than Make A Track. Charlie Swan's charge has been progressing nicely, staying on to be a commendable fifth on his handicap bow in the same sponsor's valuable promotion at Leopardstown.

That form has looked reliable thus far, so Make A Track could have a big say if he turns out on Thursday.
