Verdict

FREEWHEELIN DYLAN was just denied a double-up at Kilbeggan last time and appeals as the sort to go well again here having crept up in the ratings for that close second. Conor Maxwell's mount seems as likely as any in this field. King's Song has been picking up prizes in Britain and is respected back here with his trainer in supreme form while Riviera Sun should find this is less taxing compared to the Blazers at Galway, in which he was fourth.
