Hardly a race to get too involved in though WITHOUT THE BOP could reward each-way support. Eoin Doyle's charge won a chase at Tramore last month and reverted to hurdles with a fair effort over a trip too short at Kilbeggan. He looks reasonably treated and can give a good account though Prosperity Square is certain to come in for major support and should go close. Conor O'Dwyer has booked Ruby Walsh and a recent close second to Raheenwood at Roscommon suggests the combination will be difficult to keep out of the frame. Wreckitman stepped up to this trip for the first time to easily land a Sligo maiden and is on the upgrade while winning point-to-pointer King Rocco ran his best race to date over timber at Listowel last time and is another to consider.
