Diamondgeezer Luke went very close over hurdles at Listowel last time but has yet to win a race under any code in 39 attempts. RES IPSA LOQUITUR makes more appeal as she posted her best effort so far when third at Down Royal a fortnight ago and has plenty of scope for further progress. Grannys Garden is another to show her first worthwhile form when fourth at Sligo last time, while Bye Bye O Bye and Dr Kildare both made the frame in between their more regular modest efforts.
