Waver has attempted to make all on his last two starts over 1m4f but only stayed on at one pace when headed. He should be suited by the shorter trip and has to be on the short-list. Rockabilly Riot has dropped to what should be a winnable mark but hasn't been finding much in a finish while it was heavy ground when Troon scored at Listowel in September. TRULY GENIUS will have the benefit of Luke Dempsey in the saddle and though last month's Leopardstown winner was beaten at the Curragh subsequently it was a much better race than this so he deserves support here.
