Forecast

Festival D'ex (11/4), Pencilfulloflead (3/1), Francin (4/1), Opposites Attract (7/1), Fully Charged (7/1), Sixshooter (9/1), Quartz Du Rheu (14/1), Mr Hendricks (33/1)

Verdict
The Gordon Elliott-trained PENCILFULLOFLEAD can back up his win in a Punchestown maiden on heavy ground over a similar trip last month. The six-year-old destroyed the 13 runner field by 12L and should have too much for the likes of his biggest threat in Francin, trained by Willie Mullins who was last seen getting off the mark at the fourth time of asking at this venue last month. Fully Charged for trainer Henry De Bromhead and the Gigginstown House Stud-owned Sixshooter can compete for minor honours.
