Mr Cosmopolitan might have won at Down Royal on St Patrick's Day but for a bad mistake at the third last and then fell at Navan so his jumping has to be taken on trust. Stoney performed with credit behind Coole Avenue at Thurles but there's nothing between him and Turica on their previous run at Clonmel. It's about time CROWDED ROOM was winning a race and this looks a decent opportunity. He hasn't been beaten far in handicap company in his last four starts and this looks a slight ease in grade. Some Benefit didn't run as well at Limerick last time as she had when runner-up to Way Up In The Air at Thurles but Royal Vic should make a chaser and Rodriguez had a run on the Flat to put him straight last month.
