Derek O'Connor returns from injury and will ensure Chakisto gets a good ride while Nina Carberry should get a tune out of The Big Easy, who made a promising debut behind stablemate Jezki at Leopardstown. Don Cantillon wouldn't be sending Grand Jesture from Newmarket for nothing and Jonjo O'Neill's It's A New Day is related to a host of winners. Sizing Rio comfortably landed a point-to-point at Bennetsbridge on his debut and is in the same ownership as SIZING SAHARA, who gets the nod. Willie Mullins' grey cost connections £80,000 at the sales which isn't a surprise as he's a half-brother to five winners including the very useful Arcalis. Cul Baire is a rare bumper runner for Jim Bolger and with his yard in outstanding form on the level the son of King's Best is one to keep an eye on.
