Having Shane Shortall on board will help He Is Top Class combat his rise in the weights but the hat-trick seeker has had a few tries over this longer trip in the past. COULEUR DE LA LOI is 5lb higher than when scoring over further at Downpatrick but is another on an upward curve and looks capable of following up in this company. Dedoctorsdaughter arrives in form but One Fine Morning might be better over fences nowadays and Fantastic Bob disappointed at Roscommon after winning here previously. On My Own was behind He Is Top Class at Sligo and will struggle to reverse that form.
