Rocky Wednesday was placed in Grade company earlier this year but recent runs have been well below that standard. Mystic Desir had been chasing in France before joining Jessica Harrington. He made a reasonable start over timber at Naas and didn't run badly in Listed company there last time. He looks certain to go well but Willie Mullins introduces another potentially useful type in TENNIS CAP, who has had two bumper runs in France and has the pedigree of a high-class jumper. Monksland looks a big threat as though he ran out on his only start between the flags he made no mistake on his debut for Noel Meade, landing a Down Royal bumper in the style of a useful recruit.
