Though not beaten far, Wateed had an easier opportunity at Listowel last time. HENSON makes more appeal on his handicap debut given he's less exposed and David Marnane's colt gets the nod. Snowmane is also lightly-raced but was still beaten a long way when third at Navan last time but Leopardstown winner Teoirim is drifting back towards a winning mark after a string of lacklustre displays. Gunshot looks best of the rest in a modest handicap.
