Shaneshill was acquired by Graham Wylie after finishing third in a point-to-point in February so he must have seen something to like and Willie Mullins takes charge. But SHANTOU ED made a sparkling debut behind the useful Toe The Line in a Listowel bumper in September and looks ready to score here. Swantykay was beaten a long way when runner-up at Downpatrick and Hairy O'Malley looks a better prospect after staying on strongly behind The Winkler at Galway. This has been run three times and Noel Meade has won it twice so Maralin point-to-point winner Wounded Warrior has to be kept on the right side.
