Peachey Moment has won here in the past but needs to bounce back from a couple of less-than-impressive runs. Baileys Concerto couldn't complete the hat-trick at Perth and is a pound higher here but Fiddlers Reel has every chance having only gone down by half-a-length over a longer trip two weeks ago - Daragh Bourke's claim is a positive. Lady Of Verona beat Flaming Matron by 14 lengths over track and trip last month but would have been a distant second to HARRYS WHIM had Maurice Barnes' charge not blundered his chance away at the last. The latter's jumping is obviously a concern but he is given another chance as Gleann Na Ndochais usually finds at least one too good.
