Verdict

Stellar Notion is likely to try and make his run a winning one from the front and having just failed over further at Leopardstown last time, he's got to be respected at this shorter trip. It is worth noting that the champion jockey has sided with Rolly Baby of the options that were presented to him while last month's Leopardstown scorer Lake Takapuna is very much of interest again. A TOI PHIL'S trainer has enough runners here for a competitive race amongst themselves but the two-time winner over fences appeals for this handicap debut having not quite cut it in Grade One company recently. Of his stablemates, the consistent Clarcam has each-way appeal while three-time scorer this season Kylecrue might be under the radar after failing over three-miles on his latest run. Total Recall finds a fair opening mark here on the back of his Navan success and can be competitive in a deep contest. 1. A Toi Phil 2. Kylecrue 3. Total Recall
