EYE OF THE STORM was narrowly beaten by Missunited in a similar race at Galway earlier this month but that was his first start since May and he's since scored comfortably at Listowel.

Unaccompanied can never be ruled out though she's much better on softer ground while Sir Ector is more at home over a longer trip.
