Royal Boru won a handicap at Perth last month and was very unlucky not to follow-up the next day when falling at the last while in front. Stay With It hasn't acted in the heavy conditions in his races since scoring at Clonmel in December and can do better while Safe Home produced his best run to date behind Bog War at Fairyhouse. Denis Hogan won this a couple of years ago and though Royal Shot hasn't run since September he has the form to go well if ready. Top Of The Town is the type to improve but it's NO KIDDING who gets the vote after showing massive improvement to finish runner-up to Accordion Twilight at Limerick.
