A tough start for punters but TASITIOCHT looks the one to be on. Willie Mullins' mare has been a little disappointing on her last couple of starts after her earlier victories but they were in strong company and she has the scope to do better. Curvacious was a surprise winner when making all at Killarney but may not be allowed such a lead this time and Sitcom was behind the selection at Punchestown in April, though improved to score at Sligo. Twin Plan has had more experience than most and if it comes to a battle he won't be found wanting though he needs further so Honey Bach looks more of a threat as last month's victory at Sligo has been given a boost.
