Prince Roco continues to disappoint and has fallen in three of his last four starts over fences though he would have to be respected if putting in a clear round. Ireland's Call was making his chasing debut when down the field at Tipperary a month ago but that was only his second start in almost a year and he had been in good form over timber previously. TURF WAR progressed nicely over hurdles last year and was at his best on good and fast ground. He made a promising start over fences behind Tribes And Banner at Tipperary last month and should make a chaser. Armaramak and Celtic Strand have enough experience of the bigger obstacles to make their presence felt and the former ran well behind Warcraft at Clonmel last time.
