Verdict

Tipperary handler Denis Hogan has already tasted success this Festival and INIS MEAIN can continue the stable's run and complete a hat-trick in the process despite an incredible 23lb rise for his victories at Killarney and Leopardstown. Ronan Whelan's claim will be a bonus on the five-year-old who won both races with his head in his chest and is obviously capable of much more. The three-year-old King Of Oriel ran well here on Monday and can run from a lower mark so has to be of interest but the main threat should arrive in the shape of Call Me Bubbles. He stepped up to this trip from a mile to beat the in-form Beach Of Falesa at Roscommon and, though he's another hit with a big weight rise, still looks on a lenient mark. Westhaven has been in good form over timber while Casimir Road was the easy winner of a novice hurdle at Bellewstown and is another to consider.
