Verdict

Bonisland's runs behind Rule the World here and Ballycasey at Thurles warrant the utmost respect but SUNTIEP's debut success over track and trip in January marked him down as one to follow and Willie Mullins' seven-year-old, who has any amount of scope, can extend his unbeaten record today. Irish Thistle won over 2m here in January but was well beaten at Naas eights days ago and has yet to prove his stamina over this kind of distance. Maccas Lad won a Fairyhouse handicap last time but it will be a big shock if he's good enough here.
