Dowd's Angle hasn't run since the summer of 2012 where he was placed in three maiden hurdles so will probably need this. The Engineer ran quite well behind Snowell at Wexford and this longer trip could suit but Andiamos is still a maiden after 14 career starts. West Of The Edge is also chasing his first success under Rules but is getting closer and should get into the frame again. Special Token is inconsistent though capable of a big run from this mark at her best but it's about time DRIVE ON LOCKY was winning and this looks his chance. He'd been threatening to get off the mark with two fine runs in January and a bad blunder put paid to his chances at Thurles last time. Gone Bust produced a 33/1 shock at Limerick though there was no fluke about it as he was always travelling well and along with recent Punchestown winner Duty Dance hasn't been badly treated by the assessor.
