There are few more shrewd operators in Ireland than Denis Hogan and SHALAMAN can complete a double after being awarded the race at Killarney. He was undoubtedly unlucky in-running and, as that was only his sixth race, he can defy a 6lb rise with Ana O'Brien's claim reducing the extra by 2lb. Irish Bulletin didn't handle softer going at Galway after scoring on fast ground at Wexford so these conditions are in his favour as they are for the progressive Carried, who looks ready to strike soon after a good effort at Navan. King Of Oriel hasn't won in 15 starts but couldn't have got much closer to Tohugo at Fairyhouse so should get involved though the main threat may arrive in the shape of Polished Rock, who was staying on strongly over a slightly shorter trip here a week ago.
