SOLO PERFORMER has the best form on offer. The course and distance winner arrives on the back of a victory at Roscommon and will take the beating with a similar effort. Clara Bel La should also go well having gone close over 2m last time though a further 4lb rise looks a bit excessive so Weather Watch could prove a bigger danger. He got off the mark at Tipperary at the second time of asking and and has more scope than Knockcroghery, who scored at the same track last week.
