TONER D'OUDAIRIES is the class act here having already won a Grade 3 and been placed at a higher level. He's had a busy campaign but it didn't stop him running really well at Aintree and he can get back to winning ways. Noble Prince has been running very well, especially when beating Realt Dubh in a Listed contest at Thurles in November, though he's held by the selection on his previous start at Punchestown. Caim Hill has won 13 races in a long and successful career but this is the first time he's run at this level in four years. Supreme Doc doesn't quite look up to this class and it's over two years since Carrigeen Lechuga won a race though she's getting plenty of weight from the selection.
