Paddy The Celeb enters the fray in good form having battled on really well at Roscommon but he's conceding weight to some very progressive rivals. EQUITY SWAP was raised a massive 14lb for scoring at Navan but it made no difference as he won even more easily at Leopardstown. He's up another 10lb for this and faces the trip for the first time but will be very difficult to beat. Shamooda was over 7l behind the selection at Navan but has since scored twice over this trip. She's a filly on the upgrade and looks certain to get competitive though she has nothing in hand of Security Breach, who was only a neck behind her at Fairyhouse last time on only her third start.
