All Class would be the selection if getting a run from her reserve spot after landing a touch at Navan. In her likely absence, DUCHESS RAVENWAVES beat Room To Roam so easily on testing ground at Navan that a follow-up looks likely despite a 12lb rise and any further rain would aid her cause. Stellify has been narrowly beaten the last three times including at Sligo on Sunday and over track and trip when she had Custers Mistake and Allora Yeats behind, though the latter ran much better at Navan last month. Three times Flat winner New Society scored over hurdles at Fairyhouse last month so has to be respected while Shamiyan, a winner over 1m4f at Dundalk in November, will have found 1m2f too short on his reappearance at Leopardstown and is one to note.
