Artic Pearl won this last year and was narrowly beaten a year earlier. His two recent runs have been over fences and he's very much respected. Treacysenniscorthy has thrived since stepping up to longer trips than this and could find it on the short side and though Burlesque Queen is progressing at a rate of knots she's gone up another 11lb for her victory at Clonmel. ANDALUSA is still a maiden but showed plenty of potential last season and makes her handicap debut on what could be a lenient mark so gets the vote. World Premier won over timber in the UK and is on a handy mark now with the Maddens so is one to note.
