Monahullan Prince has run a couple of decent races since reappearing after a long break and is on such a lowly mark that he has to be respected in a race where few arrive in any sort of form. That last remark doesn't apply to GO PADDY GO, however, as he followed his best-ever run at Wexford a year ago with a fine performance at Ballinrobe last month where he led at this trip before being overhauled close home. That should have put him straight and compensation awaits. Sir Loujay also ran very well over a longer trip at Ballinrobe and he's just running into form so looks the one to chase the selection home. Alajan may prove best of the remainder.
