Schelm won this a year ago and has a penalty to carry which makes things difficult against ARAN CONCERTO and Archie Boy. All three ran behind Psycho at Killarney 10 days ago with Aran Concerto did best in second place. He was receiving 10lb from both of today's rivals but had enough in hand to confirm the placings and take this. Dundrum looked promising when beating a big field easily at Down Royal in February and never recovered from a bad mistake at the first when pulled up here last week. He can do better than that and has the scope to give his more experienced rivals a fright.
