Kanesh has plenty of experience in these kind of events and though absent since last summer that shouldn't be a concern and it will be a surprise if he's not in the shake-up. Not Before Eight gained his only success under Rules over this course and distance in December 2011 when he beat the useful Tammys Hill. He ran in all the best races subsequently and though his last couple of runs have been disappointing he has to be on the shortlist. IBETELLINGYOUALIE is a young hunter going places judging by a facile victory at Clonmel. That wasn't much of a race but he did it nicely and looks the one to beat. Onefortheroadmac wasn't far behind Kanesh in a point-to-point last May and looks best of the remainder.
