Verdict

Qhilimar has been gradually dropping in the ratings and though 5lb higher for scoring at Tramore he's won from this mark in the past so should give a good account. Mart Lane hasn't had much experience and was having only his second run over fences when scoring at Fairyhouse so he's entitled to make further progress and isn't badly treated. HOUSE RULES is better handicapped over hurdles but has a progressive profile and, now that the better ground has come, he's the type to have a good summer starting here. Rubert produced a fine effort behind Immediate Response at Clonmel and a repeat of that would see him go close while Yes Tom has generally competed at a higher level and is no forlorn hope despite his big weight.
