Tiger Tap Tap (1/2), Insult (9/4), Ferocious (12/1), Rightplacerightime (25/1)

Verdict
Struggling in a number of starts around 2m the step up in trip appeared to benefit the Willie Mullins-trained TIGER TAP TAP when getting off the mark for connections at Naas last month. The five-year-old can back that win up here at the expense of the Gigginstown House Stud pair Ferocious for the Gordon Elliott yard, winner over 2m5f at Tramore last month and the Henry De Bromhead-trained Insult.
  1. Tiger Tap Tap
  2. Ferocious
  3. Insult
