Thousand Stars won this in 2012 but was only ninth last year. He's staged something of a revival lately, however, and should give Katie Walsh a good ride as he clearly likes the track and beat Le Grand Luce and stablemates Zaidpour, who won a Grade 1 at Leopardstown in December and was third in this last year, and Diakali, as well as Paul Nicholls' Zarkandar, over a shorter trip here last month. GEMIX won last year's renewal and though preparations haven't gone as smoothly this year is fancied to stage a repeat as everything else is in his favour. Tony Martin's Bog Warrior could reach the frame if he's back on song.
