Assemble (13/8), Egality Mans (5/2), Axiomatic (9/2), Port Stanley (11/2), Oscar Montel (8/1), Getalife (20/1), Banner Rebel (33/1), Captain Jimmy (33/1), Aracaras (50/1), Friary Land (100/1), O'faolains Cailin (100/1)

Verdict
ASSEMBLE for trainer Joseph O'Brien got off the mark for connections at the fourth time of asking when landing a Fairyhouse bumper over 2m on soft ground last month and can progress further in this company at the expense of the Willie Mullins-trained Egality Mans in the colours of Cheltenham Gold cup winner Al Boum Photo. The Jessica Harrington-trained Port Stanley and the Milan gelding Axiomatic for trainer Gordon Elliott should not be taken lightly.
