Most of these enter centre stage in good heart including Lonrach, who stepped up to this trip for the first time at Roscommon and produced a very good run. Tibet has produced a couple of disappointing efforts after a winning debut at Gowran and is best watched for now but URSA MAJOR is in fine shape and had the useful Azamata behind when runner-up to Athens at Navan in April. He had earlier given 5lb and a neck beating to subsequent Wexford winner Voleuse De Coeurs at Dundalk and, as there's no real reason for a form reversal, he can defy his big weight and take this. Casual Creeper was beaten over seven lengths in that Wexford event but is much better off and should get closer.
