It's never easy completing a hat-trick of bumper victories but this looks at the mercy of MORNING RUN, who is looking very useful after victories at Punchestown and Down Royal. She has to concede 13lb to Collen Beag with jockey claims taken into consideration and the latter appeared to find 2m5f stretching her stamina after her victory at Limerick. Allez Encore was always in the firing line on her debut here last month but could only stay on at one pace so Paul Nolan's newcomer Supreme Hope may offer more of a threat.
