ACHNAHA is easily the top-ranked entry and she's been racing in much better class. Her placed effort in a Group 3 at the Curragh in March is the stand-out form though she was well beaten when tackling similar company at Naas so caution is advised. Wateed continues to frustrate and has now been runner-up in four of his last five starts. He steps up to this trip for the first time though his pedigree is all about sprinting. Intense Debate looks the main threat as she got no sort of run when strongly fancied at Ballinrobe last time and Jim Bolger should be finding a race for her soon. The Scourge is well exposed but should still do best of the remainder.
