Waver, a winner over 1m2f at Naas, has been tried over longer trips subsequently including 1m6f last time so this is a huge drop in trip and a small field may not suit. Ravello Again was confined to Polytrack on her first four starts but has improved on Turf and scored at Bellewstown. She's been hit with an 8lb rise but Connor King's claim is a bonus and she's no forlorn hope. Capitol Hill, who scored over the course and distance last month, returned to winning ways at Galway and will take some beating though an 11lb rise could just hand the verdict to BALLYORBAN. He ended last year in superb form and was having just his second start of this campaign when a good fourth at Naas earlier this month and should be ready for this.
