Captain Cee Bee won this for Eddie Harty in 2007 and the stable is represented here by HOT PROSPECT. Rated 110 when trained by Michael Jarvis in the UK, he finished lame on his only start over hurdles on New Year's Day but will have come on for his run at the Curragh last month and is handed the vote in a moderate contest. Clear Hills, a winning point-to-pointer, has shown signs of ability over hurdles and Gallant Oscar is the type to do better though Rule The World, who started favourite when scoring at Affane on his only start between the flags last November, could be the main threat.
