Chillie Billie is usually thereabouts but there have been a few encouraging efforts lately from TSAR PAUL including one over this track and trip in April when second to Doonard Prince, who won this last tear. Ana O'Brien seems to get on well with James Nash's nine-year-old who is handicapped to go close. Count Of Carabass must go on the short-list given he's only found one too good in his last two starts and he finished ahead of Chillie Billie and the selection last time, though both had excuses. Kano's Ghirl won over this trip at Navan but was only 5th over 5f at Down Royal subsequently.
