PRIMROSEANDBLUE looks the safest option despite a very long absence as he had looked a useful recruit in 2009 and has had a long break since disappointing when favourite at Gowran last February. He doesn't have much to beat here as Loch Garbh was beaten a long way when last seen here in October and Oh So Sweet was very one-paced at Kilbeggan. Minella Reception showed a little promise on testing ground at Listowel but will need to make progress to take a hand here.
