Esytopolishadimond's winning run came to an end here in April and reappears on a mark 15lb higher than for his first success. Pivotal Rock has been running well enough both here and on Turf to suggest he can get involved while The Black Devil has been in very good heart but has never raced at a trip as short as this. Granny On Fire has been raised a massive 11lb for her easy victory at Bellewstown so the vote goes to LIBERTY ROCK. He has a poor strike-rate on Turf but is better on this surface and has scored three times over the track and trip, all from much higher marks than this. After scoring at Roscommon a month ago, Flaring Forth ran a shocker when favourite at Naas and is much better than that.
