Killer Crow was heavily supported to make a winning debut at Leopardstown in December but could only plug on at one pace behind Windsor Park. The pair behind have been well beaten subsequently though Willie Mullins' charge is certain to have come on for the run. GOLAN DANCER hasn't done much wrong despite finishing runner-up three times. He just didn't have the pace to hold off Lord Scoundrel at Clonmel last time after attempting to make all and can hopefully gain compensation here. Celtic Silver is one to keep an eye on as he caught the eye in the race won by subsequent Cheltenham runner-up Shaneshill at Naas. John Kiely and Derek O'Connor look a formidable team so the newcomer Starry Knight is one to note in the betting.
