Mark Johnston runs two in this but both Notarised and Blue Atlantic were well beaten off their current marks in the same race at Musselburgh last time. AZURITE got up late to share the spoils with Breathe Easy in a dead-heat for first at the Curragh last month. That was his first start since November so Ger Lyons' charge looks to have every chance of going in again. He's preferred to stablemate Magnolia Beach, though Urban Moon has the beating of Abby Cadabby on collateral form after scoring at the Curragh recently and can't be ignored. Zafayan steps up in distance having run below par at Naas and Abushamah is upped in class and trip on the back of a victory at Roscommon.
