Peter Fahey has won this twice in recent years and will be expecting a better show from FRONTLINE, who was the subject of a gamble on his debut in a huge field at Punchestown in May. He looked to be travelling well until running out of steam and gets a chance to recoup losses in what looks a poor contest. Super Cloud makes a quick reappearance after a fine effort at Cork on Friday where he encountered quick ground for the first time and he looks best of the remainder with experience. Pierlow is by Double Eclipse out of a very stoutly-bred mare so it will be a surprise if he has the pace for this though he's one for the future while Think Alive hasn't been seen since a fair run on heavy ground at Cork in January last year.
