Noble Call hardly picked his feet up at Tramore last time after a very good run at Clonmel while Beyond Berlin was beaten a long way when tackling fast ground for the first time at Tipperary. Plastiki showed promise for Sir Michael Stoute but hasn't run since last June so this can go to ABSOLUTLYFANTASTIC. His second to El Salvador at Dundalk is the best form on view and though beaten three times over jumps subsequently he arrives in decent form having finished runner-up here on Monday.
