Royal Luck ran two decent races over this trip on soft ground but hasn't been seen since January. Oklahoma Jack has an even longer absence to contend with having failed to reappear following a disappointing run over 2m4f on fast ground at Galway last October. Winning bumper Killary Bay has shown nothing in two starts over timber so this can go to ROSS NA RIGH, who will probably prove better over further in time but who ran well enough at Punchestown last month and has fitness on his side.
