The newcomer Behlayan is bred to be a stayer and should do better later in the season but the three with experience look closely matched. Super Sling hasn't been beaten far in either start and was prominent until the closing stages here a month ago. He could attempt to make the running this time and hand the initiative to NOMONEYNOHONEY. Ger Lyons' filly has been staying on well at the finish and a fast pace could see her use her stamina to the best effect. My Rules showed potential here and at Roscommon last summer though she's very speedily-bred and may find this too far unless there's a slow pace.
