The Plan Man won at Cork in April but couldn't justify favouritism at Limerick last time after a good run at Punchestown and this will be his first run on a faster surface. His penalty could count again him and we prefer to take a chance that POLISHED ROCK, who showed up well for a long way at Tipperary, will find the improvement to come out best. Mizyen was third at Wexford in March but has run poorly on the Flat since.
