Little Rocky started favourite for a maiden here last month but found the 2m1f too short. He's penalised for his victories on the Flat and looks to have a stiff task. Long House Saint has had plenty of chances but has shown decent form on soft ground so connections will be hoping for plenty of rain. Mick Hourigan also runs Hash Brown, who ran well over a trip too short at Galway. Abbazagga was a 50/1 chance when runner-up at Cork and won't be anything like those odds this time. Nor will SIX BOOKS, who started 100/1 when producing easily his best form so far behind Much Wants More, who runs earlier, at Tipperary - he looks progressive enough to gain his first victory.
