Verdict

Dont Tell De Purty won this in 2011 under Nina Carberry, one of just two victories in a career littered with poor efforts. It would be no great shock if he scored again though is too unpredictable to saddle with the selection. The veteran Cool Warrior has returned from a spell of hunting and showed his liking for fast ground at Roscommon last time - a 4lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run. SONIC BEAT has never won but ran easily his best race to date on just his fourth start over fences at Tramore last time to earn the vote. Winning point-to-pointer Western Star has never raced on ground this quick but Close Review looked in good form until running a shocker at Gowran. Rathmoyle House attracted good support at Perth last month but fell at the fourth-last and is still a maiden.
