VINO VINO CAVO wasn't suited by fast ground at Galway having landed a Limerick handicap on good going earlier. This is his first attempt over this trip over hurdles but should be suited and gets the vote. Yachvili is in good form and likes the track and trip though he's now on his highest ever mark and this is a tough contest. Down The Dale gained an impressive victory at Downpatrick before being taken off his feet on fast ground at Galway. He can do better and the trip should be ideal while Aughwilliam Lady had a lot to do in a much better race at Galway and is better judged on her victory over this trip at Clonmel in May. Diyla is 16lbs higher than when scoring at Sligo in May but has run a couple of decent races on the flat recently. Oxalido completed a hat-trick here at around this time in 2008 and scored at Wexford last August so this is obviously his time of year.
