The majority of these enter the fray in poor form. Wild Salmon is still a maiden under Rules but generally gets round in his own time and Ionisphere has some scope having run just five times over fences. Saigheada Beaga, twice a winner between the flags, ran his best race to date over regulation fences at Thurles last month but it's a long time since Ardglen was showing any real dash and he looks high enough in the ratings. SON OF MOYNE doesn't like heavy ground and has been struggling lately so the quicker going should bring about enough improvement to go close here and he's handed the vote from a mark just 4lb higher than when scoring at Thurles in October.
