J: James Ryan

T: T G McCourt

Nine-time AW winner who is 0-9 on turf but he's run some good races on this surface and can operate from a 15lb lower turf mark; produced a career best when narrowly denied over 6f at Dundalk last time and an intriguing runner back down in trip.

Credit to his trainer and was recording ninth win here last month when getting up on post over 5f (Musical Tribute third) in February; continued to another career-high mark when just denied in similar contest a week ago, finishing strongly (Musical Tribune again third); equally adept at 6f and has to be considered a major player once again.

Very lightly raced 3yo; debut promise at Fairyhouse in July and reappeared to win C&D maiden in October in first-time cheekpieces, speed throughout over shorter trip and holding on well despite running green (second a beaten favourite since); scope for further improvement but likely needed here against some seasoned handicappers.

Left his debut behind to win a Dundalk maiden (6f) in October and wasn't beaten far by Inishmot Prince on AW when last seen (9lb better off at the weights with that rival here); could go well if he's as effective down at the minimum but may need this after a five-month break.

Grand sort but often gives them a head start and modest strike-rate over last two years; 0-8 on AW but best run for some time last month over C&D when strong-finishing fourth from a similar draw; only midfield here on Wednesday though; hard to have total confidence in given his starting tendencies.
