Miranour is upped another 9lb for his latest success at Down Royal. He should make a bold bid for his hat-trick regardless but NEVER A SECRET is just preferred. The latter finished ahead of King High, Banna Man, Another Charm and Geraldine Gold when runner-up at Clonmel last time and looks to be facing an easier task in this. Boxer Beat wasn't disgraced when third at Sligo the last time he raced over hurdles and makes most appeal of the remainder.
