Teal can bridge the age gap.

Gold Cup hero Conor O'Dwyer is the man to follow at Downpatrick today when he partners Teal Bridge in the marathon Jamieson Ulster National.

This veteran point-to-pointer is a course winner and proved his well- being when defeating Coolafinka at Fairyhouse recently.

Teal Bridge should be well suited by this gruelling trip in heavy ground. Ridden with some restraint, he should gallop up the final hill when most of his rivals have given up the struggle.

Arthur Moore's Dee Ell and local mare Trench Hill Lass are likely to prove the biggest threats to Andy Heffernan's ultra-tough twelve-year- old.

O'Dwyer also has prospects on Geallainnban in the Novice Chase. A faller at Fairyhouse on Sunday, he might have to settle for the runner-up berth behind Collon, an eye-catching third to Another Deadly at Clonmel last week.

Collon is trained by Tony Martin whose Yes Boss looks the danger to Philip Fenton's mount Shaws Cross in the Hunters Chase.

Monavale is a confident nap selection in the bumper following a highly promising debut run at Navan recently.

A close fifth to Rockfield Leader then, the form has been advertised and the mare, trained by Noel Meade, should not be opposed.
