Sweet Annathea hasn't proved she stays this far and is up 9lb for her Tipperary victory. Daigreen has no problems with the trip but has been beaten regularly off lower marks and though Moonbi Creek is certain to attract support his best form has been on Polytrack. GRIS LADERA won this a year ago and is just 5lb higher. He's changed stables and had a recent run over timber to put him straight so is handed the vote to complete the double. The Alarm Clock is still a maiden but went close at Bellewstown and should get involved with just a 1lb rise to contend with but Morethanafeeling is 9lb higher than her last victory and Hawkswood is better over further.
