Churchfield Champ was conceding 3lb to subsequent easy winner Battlecat at Bangor last time and enters the fray in good form though he's naturally shot up the weights. Anshan Dreams was earlier just behind him at Limerick and looks set to go chasing but it's about time TRIBES AND BANNER was adding to his lone success over timber and on his last two performances at this track he should do so despite climbing the weights. Dark Prospect was behind him here in July and looks held and Morning Ireland is still looking a few pounds high and the ground could be on the soft side for him. Two In A Row may prove a bigger threat as he may have been a little unfortunate at Cork last time.
