On The Fringe

On The Fringe (Enda Bolger) looks likely to go off favourite following his hugely-impressive 17-length victory over Following Dream (Alastair Ralph) in the St James's Place Foxhunter Chase at Cheltenham on March 13. Bolger saddled the 1999 victor Elegant Lord.

Bolger told the Irish Independent: "He [On The Fringe] came home in great nick. Hopefully we will be heading to Liverpool with him. We are giving him a fortnight chilling out and we will start him back for Liverpool then."

The trainer added: "Liverpool was on our agenda at the beginning of the season because it looked like the obvious race for him.

"I don't know whether it is because he has got older and more experienced, but he definitely seems to be seeing out his races better this season than ever."
