Ever Dreaming is first reserve but would have an obvious chance with her penalty for her success at Ballinrobe on Tuesday if getting a run. Colberay was having his first run in over a year when a fine third at Killarney earlier this month when he may have even won but for mistakes at the last two flights while High Notes ran his best-ever race over this trip at Cork and has scope for improvement. Strolling Home is a chaser who ran reasonably when reverting to hurdles last time though he's better over a longer trip. This can go to SIBERION, a winner on the Flat and over hurdles in France, returned to form with a fine effort at Sligo recently and it won't take much winning despite the big field.
