Starkie was only third to Page Turner at Limerick in December but Henry De Bromhead's charge is 11lb better off today and the top weight was well beaten at Cork a week later. Rubert was tailed off at Leopardstown on St Stephen's Day and probably needs a bit further nowadays but The Shepherd King is back over a more suitable trip and THE WAY WE WERE was placed off today's mark last time. The latter enjoys a massive turnaround in the weights than when fourth to Luke's Benefit at Punchestown earlier and can come out on top today.
