ROYAL CAVIAR looks certain to start a short-priced favourite after his impressive victory over Lord Scoundrel at Fairyhouse and the runner-up didn't let the form down subsequently. Willie Mullins' charge should take this very soft looking Grade 2 with few problems. Fine Rightly made a winning debut at Ayr in January so the lack of a recent run shouldn't be a problem while Philip Fenton tries Desertmore Stream in a hood after a pair of reasonable runs when he's been strongly fancied.
