An Saighdiur has won four times on this track though not for two years. He's been plying his trade at a much higher level and finished a close third in the Silver Cup at Ayr in September. Master Speaker made a very encouraging debut for Aidan O'Brien at the Curragh last March then had few problems scoring at long odds-on at this track the following month. His new connections will be looking to get off to a good start but the fitness of RUMMAGING may be enough to see him home. He's been in superb form, winning three times here since November and running well in a Lingfield Listed contest last month.
