John Kiely won this last year and the recent Wexford maiden winner Another Charm will make a bold bid from her lowly spot in the handicap. Roman Numeral beat Whiskey And Rye here last month but couldn't quite cope with a 7lb rise at Tramore subsequently. Page Turner has shown promise over fences but has plenty to do back over hurdles with a big weight and it's SPEED DIAL who gets the vote. He was in cracking form at the turn of the year winning three times and has been sharpened up on the Flat recently including a victory at Gowran two weeks ago. Winning bumper Way Up In The Air followed her Punchestown maiden success with a very good run in a Listed contest at Leopardstown and looks the main threat.
