ZABANA would be vulnerable to an improver but there doesn't look anything capable of matching his overall form here and his close third behind Civil War at Dundalk last month would be good enough. Stay In My Heart started favourite at Fairyhouse last time after a couple of decent efforts but she was always struggling and never got competitive. The newcomer Spirit In The Rye wouldn't need to be anything special to make a winning start though the testing ground probably won't be in his favour.
