Winning point-to-pointer Dominetta Vitali ran well over this trip in a Navan maiden last time and with further progress likely can get involved as can Jolly Mac Vic, though he's yet to fulfill the promise shown on his debut at Roscommon. Jumbo John returns after a long break but showed potential behind Competitive Edge at Punchestown in February and should be winning soon - but SKIBABE is handed the vote. He twice ran well in very heavy going at the beginning of the year and will have needed his comeback run at Listowel last month where he led for a long way until fading. Five Point Plan may prove best of the rest though a penalty for his bumper victory at Clonmel in March won't aid the cause.
