Shabra Charity makes a quick reappearance after being beaten a long way into second at Downpatrick on Wednesday and was a distance behind TOFINO BAY in a Grade 2 at Naas in January. The winner finished runner-up in the National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham and will be very difficult to beat here. Back In Focus won the latter race for Willie Mullins, who saddles Vesper Bell here. He's turning into a really strong staying type whose latest runs at Punchestown and Cheltenham point to another big effort. Neither Noras Fancy nor Argocat can be dismissed in this small field as both have won at this track in the past.
