SIX SILVER LANE (NAP) won this in 2012 and has run well enough recently to suggest he can score again though Landau looks a big threat. The latter scored over hurdles last week and Nina Carberry will get the best from him while the old-timer Six Of Hearts has gradually dropped in the ratings and could have one last hurrah in him. He's Got Rhythm won this in 2010 and was only a length behind the selection two years ago so he's one to note under Robbie McNamara while My Son Max arrives from the UK having won a claimer at Beverley. Korbous was in good form in mid-summer but paid the price and is now 9lb higher than his victory at Leopardstown.
