Keble is comfortably the top-rated based on his two-year-old form in 2015 but he hasn't run for two years. The veteran Glenbank King won a handicap here in August but has run very poorly subsequently. BLACK LABEL needs further having won over 2m at Dundalk in March but the likely conditions should make this a stamina test and he's taken to gain career victory number eight. Measured showed signs of ability in a Down Royal bumper but was beaten a long way over hurdles at Tramore earlier this month. Grove Hill wasn't beaten far in a Gowran claimer over a trip too short last month while Giorni Felice just finished in front of Match My Fire in a Fairyhouse handicap on Friday though the latter has much the better of the weights here.
