John McConnell has four entries including Hoppsan, who hasn't been seen since scoring at Dundalk in November, and the consistent Stynes, who has been a bit unfortunate not to have won at Dundalk. Mama Sox may prove the best of the quartet as she ran a fine race at Dundalk in February, her first start since 2012. UNDECIDED. a winner at Dundalk in February, bounced back to form on soft ground at Limerick where he came with a strong run from the back. Sean Corby will ensure he gets a good ride and a second victory looks on the cards. Dancingwithangels has now gone 20 starts without winning and is very poorly handicapped on Turf unlike Balmont Flyer, who is 10lb better than his all-weather mark and has the promising Tom Madden on board. Trans City rarely gets his head in front but his close third to Fiosrach at Cork last month would definitely see him in the mix and Ana O'Brien is his regular partner. Mahrajaan has been jumping but arrives here on a very lowly mark so should be considered.
