There can't be many more versatile performers in training that Beau Michael, who has won eleven races in total on the Flat over hurdles and fences. He continues in fine shape though may be a couple of pounds high in the weights now. LADY BENNETT stayed on stoutly to gain the upper hand close home over 1m2f at Naas and her one run over this trip ended with a second place. She's on a career-high mark but has more to give and can follow up. Redera has been racing in strong company over timber and doesn't appear badly treated as he returns to the level but Noble Call looks a bigger threat. He's still a maiden after a dozen starts but was narrowly beaten by Paddy The Celeb at Roscommon last time and a 2lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run. C&D winner Lovers Peace may prove best of the remainder.
