Robert Tyner has had a superb campaign and KNOCK BEAUTY has been one of the flag-bearers. She completed her hat-trick in effortless style at Navan and though she's been hit with a 12lb rise is expected to go in again. Fiery Oscar jumped moderately at Wexford where the 3m trip appeared to catch him out. He's well handicapped over fences compared to his hurdles rating and should get into the frame. Coldstonesober will have found 2m too short at Tramore and he's also better on faster ground than he had that day so he could prove a threat along with Hans Crescent, though the latter hasn't won for over two years.
