This looks tough but WESTERN BOY made a big impression when runner-up to the more experienced Private Treasure at Limerick and will take some beating with that under his belt. Some Hawk also did well on his debut at Fairyhouse where he stayed on strongly behind On Blueberry Hill when Draco wasn't far behind in third but had already had a run. Wicklow Brave represents Willie Mullins and he's the first foal of a mare who won over 1m4f so should have enough pace and Very Wood won easily between the flags at Oldtown so is one to note for Gordon Elliot. Windsor Park goes for Dermot Weld and the son of Galileo is a half-brother to the Group placed One Great Cat so he's another who should be speedy enough to make an impression.
