Preswell Lad was narrowly beaten by Miss Xian here last time so a big run from the winner in the previous race will be a pointer. All Honours produced his best race to date at Thurles last month but will need to make further progress as will I'lltelimar King, a decent second at Limerick though now 2lb higher. Castlerock Rose landed a Limerick maiden but couldn't cope with the weight rise at Cork subsequently and this looks no easier while Twin Plan's recent good form has been between the flags. SUPER VIC is likely to start at a fair price is is given a tentative vote in an open contest. He showed a glimmer of ability in 2010 and was having his first start for over two years when running well for a long way behind Whatdreamsrmadeof here last month.
