Archive Footage: No worthwhile form this season.
Advocat: Solid form behind Blowing Wind at Cheltenham and Bellator at Aintree.
Generosa: Drop back to two miles will not suit this stayer.
Shantarini: Second to the mighty Istabraq last time but the form looks flattering.
Black Queen: Beaten by several of today's rivals and unlikely to reverse the form.
Gazalani: No possible chance on current form.
New Inn: First runner in Ireland for Steve Gollings but this will be no fairy tale.
Fishin Joella: Placed at two and a half miles on last two runs but may be outpaced.
Sadler's Realm: Second-string for Philip Hobbs. Looks up against it.
Arctic Weather: Past it at the age of 10.
Impulsive Dream: Subject of an ante-post gamble, he beat Advocat at Leopardstown last March and money talks.
Khairabar: No worthwhile form in past four runs.
Sawa-Id: Game little horse with too much on his plate.
Palette: Soundly beaten by Advocat last time and little chance of reversing form.
Gan-Saru: Won at Punchestown last time and has each-way claims.
Daraheen Chief: Outsider who will do well to figure.
Regency Rake: Could lack fitness after a six-month break.
Mykon Gold: Backed from 25-1 to 16-1 this week and could get into the frame.
Penny Native: Has no worthwhile recent form.
Slaney Native: Relishes soft ground and should go well.
Its Time For A Win: Will not do as his name suggests.
No Avail: Appropriately named.
Vivo: With Charlie Swan on board, he has to be respected, but looks out of his class.
Kamactay: On a hat-trick but will struggle to lower the colours of some better rivals.
Conclusion: ADVOCAT has rock-solid credentials and should not be inconvenienced by the heavy ground. Impulsive Dream commands respect after ante-post support, while the lightweights Mykon Gold and Slaney Native could fight for the minor placings.
