Liz Doyle's horses have been in tremendous form, none more so than Snowell, who completed his hat-trick over this course and distance last month. He's up another 5lb but his promising young rider can use his claim so another big run is anticipated. Hurler And Farmer was caught on this short run-in by the former on St Patrick's Day and is 2lb better off but he's since been well beaten on the Flat. The Conker Club was beaten half-a-length by Snowell at Thurles and there's a 9lb turnaround in the weights though she didn't enhance the form at Limerick last time. ON MY OWN dropped to this trip for the first time in a while at Cork last month and produced his best run for some time. He's won from a higher mark in the past so looks the one to be on. The veteran Marshim is just 2lb higher than his last victory in May and Paul Carberry was on board when he scored over this course and distance earlier.
