Roman Numeral looks best of those with experience having shown much improved form behind Cullentry Royal at Sligo though that was on much quicker going than he'll face here. Gunner Mountain, Glenmullen Bridge and Silver Cavalier should make progress from their opening efforts but as is the case in most of these races it's Willie Mullins who should land the spoils with the newcomer GREAT JONES. He's mainly bred for the Flat being related to several winners and should have too much natural pace for these rivals.
