Driveheron returned after a long break to finish runner-up over timber at Clonmel on Thursday and has a very low rating on the Flat so has to be considered. Noble Call has yet to win a race after 19 starts and ran over 1m2f at Clonmel last time but Action Master and Concrete And Clay have been in good form over hurdles and the former in particular has to be respected. LITTLE GREEN stayed on very well to score over 2m1f at Clonmel earlier this month and won with a bit in hand. He's been raised 5lb and fourth-placed Munsaab has a chance of getting closer but the positions can be confirmed and he can complete a double. Gothen Niece stayed on strongly over 1m3f at Limerick last time and will be much more at home over this trip.
