Passifyoucan very nearly lost his maiden tag at Bellewstown last time when just touched off over 3m after leading at this trip. He looks a threat in an open contest but CARUTOMARK could be the one to be on. Paul Magnier's charge completed a double early this month on fast ground but was never travelling fluently behind Prosperity Square at Sligo on his hat-trick attempt. He is better than that and is taken to return to winning ways. According To Him made most and battled on to score on his handicap debut at Cork in May and hasn't had too much racing. A 7lbs rise doen't appear too harsh and he can get competitive again as can Top Strategy, who caused a real shock when beating King Vic at Punchestown. Alfa Beat has been in good shape over fences and it would be no surprise if he transferred that form to hurdles.
