Vincent Row has yet to win a race but fell at the last when challenging for the lead at Thurles last time. Connections won't be happy with a 2lb rise in the weights but he should be in the mix. DAY DREAM BOY had Spiker The Biker 3l behind and Slaney Conflict close up in third when scoring comfortably at Punchestown last month. He's since come off second best in a tight finish with Backinthere at Clonmel but looks progressive enough to return to winning ways. Swift Lady wasn't too far behind him at Clonmel so should pose a threat though a strike-rate of 0-24 over timber hardly inspires confidence.
