Gordon Elliott won this last year but Shattered Dream has been a big disappointment though over longer trips. Goodtime Boy landed a Limerick maiden before running reasonably well in a handicap on a return visit and should be in the frame but Shanroe Society has shot up the weights since his victory at Thurles. HAZARIBAN, the only four-year-old in the line-up, looked a bright prospect in his early races and though not fulfilling expectations he's been up against it and looks ready to gain his first success. Davyroy has shown some ability in maidens but has a big weight to carry on his handicap debut.
