Veteran is a 10-time winner and ran well enough in a Tipperary claimer last time; this is tougher but he has been dropping in the weights lately and can't be dismissed.

Old boy doesn't win often but put in a fine run last time over 7f at Curragh behind Verhoyen; is 7lb better off with that rival today and is a big player if matching that effort; at his best on quick ground.

A 14-time AW winner, including in stakes company but is yet to score on turf in 15 starts; didn't handle soft ground last time, so can be forgiven that and considered.

Won a 6f Curragh maiden last year before running well in a Group 3 there; made a fine seasonal debut over 7f at the same track and can be a player if as effective at this course back to 6f.

T: J P Murtagh

Highly tried after winner a Curragh maiden as a 2yo; revived by the switch to AW this winter, winning a 6f handicap at Dundalk in December (solid form) and then an eyecatching third back there five weeks ago (10lb claimer reported after the race that he was keen not to hit the front too soon); unlikely to be seeing too much daylight from stall 2 and James Doyle takes over in the saddle; perhaps not straightforward but he appeals as being better than his mark.
