Crawford: more improvement to come from Fine Rightly.

Daily Mirror Chase 4.40 Down Royal 3m2f ATR Card page 95 FINE RIGHTLY, a commendable third in the Irish Gold Cup last month, drops in class today and faces what appears a straightforward task against only two rivals in the feature on the St Patrick's Day card at Down Royal.

His trainer Stuart Crawford, whose Legacy Gold finished third in the Grade 1 mares' hurdle at Cheltenham on Tuesday, said yesterday: "I knew Fine Rightly would have more horses behind him than in front of him in the Irish Gold Cup. We've always liked him and I think there's more improvement to come.

"This race, close to home, looked a logical step and I'll be surprised if he doesn't beat our other runner, Yes Tom, who is taking his chance as we wanted to support the race."

The John Ryan-trained Draycott Place completes the line-up.

The Arctic Tack Stud Veterans Handicap Chase (4.55) tops the bill at Wexford, with Mount Colah, one of the younger runners in the seven-strong field, having to concede a minimum of 14lb to his rivals.

The Jerry Cosgrave-trained ten-yearold will be seeking his tenth win, and a fifth over fences.
