Punters will need to be on their toes here as hardly any can be ruled out. Coolmill attempts a hat-trick of victories on this track and is obviously respected, though a 7lb rise for his last success in November looks a bit harsh. After completing a double in 2012, Blacklough hasn't had much racing but has been in fine form this season and looks likely to get involved. LUGHNASA has been running well since the turn of the year and has been left on the same mark as when a narrow loser to Mister Hotelier at Wexford. Robert Tyner's mare looks to have a decent chance in a wide-open affair. Andiamos has had plenty of opportunities to lose his maiden tag and not taken them but his close second to Maguire's Glen in a huge field here last time puts him in with a shout.
