Timjoe arrives here after the unusual step of winning a point-to-point in a canter so a glance at the betting is advised as he'll think he's on holiday with this weight. Greatest is at the other end of the weights and has yet to win a race though this is a very moderate contest and he should go well as should Roja Dove, who wasn't beaten far over this trip on fast ground at Wexford. Montagnard has yet to win a race so a chance is taken with DRIVEHERON, who reappeared after a long break to finish a close second over hurdles at Clonmel last week and wouldn't need much more to take this.
