Allez Encore couldn't cope with the long odds-on Morning Run at Wexford but that was no disgrace and she should improve again. The winner is trained by Willie Mullins who has Grangeclare Rosa entered here but she looks more of a staying type and disappointed at Kilbeggan last time. Rathmuck Native has been placed in six of her eleven starts including her last five. She finds little in the closing stages and may be suited by a longer trip though a place on the podium beckons again. Pace And Passion will need to step-up so it's TROUBLED SOUL who is handed the vote. Denis Hogan's mare was in the process of running a cracking race when falling behind Draco over hurdles at Bellewstown then ran well enough on her bumper debut behind Behana at Galway to suggest this should be her day under Nina Carberry.
