Via Del Corso was second in a handicap over 2m at the track earlier this month and has run on the Flat since. But she appears to have a bit to find if she's to trouble DONATIS COMET. Pat Fahy's gelding tries this longer trip for the first time but is facing weak opposition and Shane Shortall's claim is a plus. Old Castletown may still have a bit of scope and should be pressing for a place, while Stonehall Jack may be capable of better.
