Allez Vic shot up the weights after his Downpatrick success but has continued to run well and has performed with credit here in the past. West Of The Edge is still a maiden but has run much better on his two latest starts and will love the testing conditions. The lightly-raced Trendy Native has returned from a spell between the flags and scored at Affane in January but Dooney Rock has been unable to take advantage of a slide down the ratings. MISSIE ELLA was in excellent form around this time a year ago scoring at Thurles on heavy ground from just 3lb lower. She should now be at her peak and is handed the vote in a tricky race. All Honours tackles this trip for the first time and is on such a lowly mark that he's expected to get into the action.
