Tommy Stack complicates matters with two in-form entries but it's VAN ROONEY who gets the vote with Shane Grey's claim swinging things his way. He was having just his fifth career start when beating the good yardstick Custom Cat at Killarney where he looked to have something in hand. His stablemate Coin Of Courage makes his debut on the surface after beating a big field at Navan in May and there's no reason why he shouldn't be suited. Suehail won over 7f here in March and has been in fine form subsequently so she has to be a threat off what looks a fair mark while C&D winner Muck 'N' Brass was having his first start since January when running reasonably well over a trip too short at Fairyhouse a month ago and can do better. Slim Chance is proving consistent and may do best of the remainder.
