Dick Laylor's Clonbeale Vacation has been in fine form between the flags and is certain to get a good ride from the trainer's daughter Liz. She'll also love the testing conditions but it was very fast going when Heisacoolhand won at Stradballey earlier this month. Experience around this track is vital so Zest For Life has to be on the short-list despite a couple of poor recent runs between the flags. He won this in 2010 and started favourite when falling last year. BOXER GEORG has never really kicked on from his superb second to Baby Run in last year's Fox Hunters' at Aintree though he did land a maiden hunters' event at Clonmel. His last two runs have been at Cheltenham and Aintree again and is taken to get back on the winning trail.
