Napa Starr was a disappointing favourite last week and soft ground is a worry here. He had earlier ran well over C&D with ASHEERAH back in ninth, but the latter will relish today's underfoot conditions and can reverse running and return to winning ways. Barrow Island and Adam's Return are both upped in class after scoring at Leopardstown last time and this is a lot tougher than the race Cairdiuil won at Galway recently. Cul A Dun ended a long losing run at Killarney last time but has been punished with a 13lb rise in the weights, while Enchanted Evening's only win this season came on the Polytrack.
