Willie Mullins won this last year with the useful Pink Hat but Rolihlahla has shown very little sign of ability so far. Behana has done much better when tackling good ground and wouldn't want any more rain but it was on the soft side when CALL ME PJ made a very promising debut behind the odds-on Run Fly Run at Ballinrobe. Held up in the rear, he came with a late run that suggested the experience will have done him the power of good and he can go one better. Dandridge had a run in January where he was well beaten but someone must have noticed something as he was heavily supported at Sligo last month only to find Powersbomb too good. The remainder were in another parish so that form looks decent and he's a big threat.
