Jefferson Davis is 1lb lower than his last victory and hasn't been running badly but Carrigready didn't run very well at Navan after his victory at Thurles. Wee Small Hours went up 6lb for scoring at Navan and has been unable to cope in subsequent starts while Seskin Flyer has been chasing since scoring over the minimum here in December. TIMMIE ROE hasn't proved he stays this far but ran his best race to date at Clonmel last month and a chance is taken on him staying the trip.
