Roisin Dubh was only beaten a neck at Limerick nine days ago and must have a chance of going one better here. Wexford third Cordelia Belle is another for the short-list while the lightly-raced Artful Artist will have his supporters. Catchin Time was second to Noble Call at Tramore last month when HARETH and Lost Book were behind but Charlie Swan's four-year-old was finishing best of all and can reverse that running with the runner-up and open his account here. Royal Shot was much-improved at Tramore and looks best of the rest.
