Verdict

A maximum field face the starter in this but few arrive in any kind of form. Drive On Locky is an exception having been placed in his last three starts. He kept on well enough at Fairyhouse last month to suggest he'll be thereabouts again, despite top weight. Granny Riona was second at Limerick in November but then fell here later that month and Fairyhouse fifth Mr Shankly is still 4lb higher than when scoring at Limerick last year. ISLEOFHOPENDREAMS left Henrietta Knight's yard almost two years ago and has his first start for Willie Mullins here. But he must have been kept in training for a reason and wouldn't need to be a world-beater to open his account on his return.
