Key Account is still looking high in the weights and has been well beaten lately while Cheap As Chips found a 7lb rise beyond him at Clonmel after scoring over this track and trip when Brian The Warrior was behind. Marshim is another who has won here but needs quicker ground so this should go to RAFI DE TRIANA. Liz Doyle's charge scored on heavy ground at Cork last month and very nearly defied a 7lb rise at Fairyhouse on Tuesday when caught close home by Push The Button. He's on the upgrade and can gain compensation.
