Forecast

Garrai Phaidin (5/2), Georges Conn (6/1), Captain Von Trappe (8/1), It Came To Pass (8/1), Undressed (8/1), Some Drama (9/1), He Rock's (10/1), Riverside City (10/1), Bothair Clei (14/1), My Hometown (14/1), Presenting Beara (14/1), Canaly (16/1), Festive Day (33/1)

Verdict
UNDRESSED was an easy winner at Limerick last time and, while runner-up Georges Conn is weighted to get much closer now, he had enough up his sleeve to suggest he can uphold the placings. The pair are surely booked to play leading roles in this contest while Bothair Clei is interesting on return to chasing off a winnable mark. Garrai Phaidin has been knocking on the door in similar company but with another 2lbs on his back now, may be forced to keep doing so here. He Rock's could have a say if putting his best foot forward now back over the larger obstacles. 1. Undressed 2. Georges Conn 3. Garrai Phaidin
