CASH OR CASUALTY has been running well off higher marks since scoring at Naas in April. He had the re-opposing He's Got Rhythm nearly three lengths behind at Limerick last time and can defy top weight in this. Xsquared is upped in class back on the Flat after a spin over hurdles and The Alarm Clock makes more appeal off his current mark. Irish Reel could make the frame but Star Links has struggled after being raised a harsh 9lb for his win at Limerick back in April.
