Ger Lyons has won this for the past two years and Moredanmijobsworth will attract support to make it a hat-trick for the yard. He's been racing over 7f and led for a long way on his latest start here. IN SALUTEM has been making steady progress, however, and there was plenty to like about his latest run behind the odds-on Scrapper Blackwell over 5f here. That looked a strong maiden and he can go one better. Bainne has run three times on heavy ground so it remains to be seen how he handles this surface while Rapid Approach will have learned plenty from his run at Leopardstown. Elastomer and Interim could prove best of the newcomers.
