Plinth scored at the meeting a year ago but Mark Walsh has chosen stablemate MARCHESE MARCONI and could have also ridden the owner's Hash Brown. The selection's recent second to Walk To Freedom over this trip at Punchestown points to his chances and he's only 2lb higher. First In the Queue completed a double for Nicky Hendesron in 2013 and had a couple of runs on the Flat in November before joining Tony Martin and Ruby Walsh has been booked so he's an obvious threat. Phantom Prince bounced back to form at Limerick, when Face Value wasn't far behind, and with just 2lb extra to contend with should get into the frame.
