It's difficult to get away from OCEAN BRIGHT as she attempts a hat-trick, particularly as she very nearly completed that task when beaten a short-head on the Flat at Tramore last week. She's in the form of her life and gets the vote though the progressive Taken Twice looks a threat. He followed a close second at Ballinrobe with a battling victory at Roscommon and the fast going will be very much in his favour. Corrick Bridge started favourite for that Roscommon event and was still in touch when falling four out so the course and distance winner is another to keep an eye on. Coosan Belle started favourite at Roscommon on Monday after a fine run behind the selection earlier, which would give him a real chance here, but he didn't come up to expectations.
