CEMISTER couldn't match strides with Minella Encore in a Killeagh point a year ago but has joined Willie Mullins and the winner subsequently won two bumpers. Calicojack has progressed with each run and battled all the way when runner-up here in December while winning point-to-pointer All For Joy hasn't been beaten far in two bumpers either side of a fair debut over hurdles. Master Of Tara won a point at Lemonsfield in March but weakened quickly when tackling a 2m4f bumper at Leopardstown in December while Bennaway was beaten nine lengths when runner-up here last month.
