No excuses on this ground and he hasn't been a million miles away in his last three starts; might just be vulnerable to stronger stayers at this trip, but certainly not ruled out.

C&D winner who responded well to blinkers when a game winner over slightly shorter at Bellewstown on Thursday, doing well to overcome a wide trip; has the penalty but perhaps a greater concern is this softer ground.

6yo with a record of 5-30; no knocking his consistency this year and he was unlucky not to have gone really close last time at Listowel (7f) when ahead of Dragon Of Malta; not had that many chances at 1m despite having won at the trip and he's fully effective in the mud.
