BALLYNACREE has far more potential than these rivals and gets the vote despite a long absence. A Grade 3 winner over hurdles at Fairyhouse in 2012, he hasn't run since December of that year but is still a youngster in chasing terms. Miley Shah had strong hurdling form but hasn't really taken to chasing so far but Back To Balloo looked to be getting his act together when unseating his rider at the second last while in front in a Leopardstown handicap. Dawerann has run poorly in both starts over fences but the experience should have done him good.
