Conem looked in fine shape when comfortably landing a Limerick handicap last month and though 5lb higher looks certain to give a good account. Armaramak was having only his second start since August when runner-up to Biddeford Lad, who runs over hurdles in the previous race, at Killarney last month and is another who can get competitive though he has plenty to make up on Un Hinged on their run at Fairyhouse in April. John Coleman's charge has since been beaten, though not disgraced, in a much tougher handicap at Punchestown and will be difficult to beat but NORTHER BAY may have his measure. He was reappearing after a long break when falling in that Fairyhouse contest won by Un Hinged where he departed at the last after just being headed by the eventual winner - compensation awaits here for Eoin Griffin's eight-year-old.
