Verdict
Not a contest where there is great depth, despite the numbers. SLAINTE AND THANKS came home in isolation last time at Clonmel and will take some stopping despite a 9lb hike if turning up here in a similar mood. Padraic O Conaire scored over a longer trip at Listowel recently, though he may find this sharp enough. Make My Heart Fly posted an improved effort on his return and commands respect given connections while veteran All About Alfie might threaten the places.
