Primo Uomo has been raised 8lb for last month's course and distance victory and plenty of his rivals have also shown their best form here. CHICLET has twice got the better of Gerard O'Leary's charge here this year and can come out on top again. She's now on a career-high mark but has a touch of class. Russian Soul could still be a force to be reckoned with in a race like this while Ostatnia was third in a Listed race at Tipperary last month, though is another who has twice finished behind the selection this season. Blood Moon is another to consider while Tithonus deserves a crack at this slightly higher level.
