Verdict

Raise The Goblet won this a year ago from the same mark but he's done little since and the race looks tougher this time around. Katie Walsh produced a 'masterclass' to get the reluctant Paramount home at Tipperary last week and a 5lbs rise may not be enough stop her mount repeating the process though she'll need to time her run to perfection and FANTASY KING could outbattle him. Charles O'Brien's charge, an easy bumper winner at Punchestown in May, followed up by beating the in-form Swiftmarc a short-head at Leopardstown where he never flinched when put under pressure. Star Wood scored over 1m5f here a year ago but ran poorly over timber on his only subsequent starts later in the year. Skylancer completed a hat-trick over hurdles last autumn and will be better for a recent run at Killarney.
