Andrew McCarthy (Ajax) at Glendalough. Of the Ajax contingent on the Brown course Andrew had the slower start only overtaking Marcus Geoghegan and Paul Smyth at the 10th and 12th controls of 19.
Still it is early days yet in the league, next Sunday's event in Donadea on totally different, flat terrain may favour Marcus's and Paul's experience.
My prediction is Marcus, Paul, Andrew.
