Fairview Star and LAW REBEL look the pair to concentrate on in this finale. The former was runner-up on his debut at Kilbeggan and well backed when third at Downpatrick last month but the latter appears to have stronger form. Jessie Harrington's son of High Chaparral was second at Limerick in May and filled the same position behind Cairdin at Galway. A repeat of the latter effort would probably suffice today. Ravensbury will have needed the run at Cork last month and may prove the pick of the remainder with former pointer Tirmoyle likely to need this.
