Accessallareas keeps finding a way to get beat but A P McCoy keeps faith with the nine-year-old. Osmosia knows how to win around here but she's been better over hurdles lately while Nether Stream has yet to convince over fences. Fintan is fairly treated back over the larger obstacles but could be due a rest. GIANT O MURCHU doesn't find much off the bridle but has won off higher marks in the past and ran reasonably well when held up over course and distance two weeks ago. He gets the nod to go one better.
