Shake It Up won a hunter chase race here a year ago and has produced some fair runs in handicaps, though isn't the most consistent. Scenic Star was well beaten when third at Kelso last week but WILLOW GRANGE enters the fray in excellent form having finished runner-up in handicaps here and at Tramore, form that should see him there at the finish. Killeen Elegance won here in 2015 and was having her first start since that year when running quite well here earlier this month so she could provide a threat though I'm An Izz Wizz looks a more likely winner providing he's over a broken blood vessel which put paid to his chance at Fairyhouse as he was in very good form earlier.
