Passage Vendome has won over hurdles and fences and was fourth under today's rider in one of these at Tramore last month. But Patrick Mullins sides the stable's ASHJAR and he looks the one to beat. The four-year-old was placed twice on the Flat in France last year and got off the mark over timber at Tramore last month. Nina Carberry rides Moon Dice and he can't be ignored having been placed at Dundalk and Wexford this year. Bumper and hurdles winner Fourni was fourth at the Curragh on her Flat debut and also demands respect under Jane Mangan. Silverpockets looks the pick of the remainder.
