It helps to have finished in the first five places last time out in this red-hot handicap. That means we can cross out Time To Study, King’s Vow, Insignia Of Rank, Great White Shark, Tiger Tap Tap, Aircraft Carrier, Zenon, Mister Blue Sky, Dalileo, Golden Spear and Machine Learner.

Weight plays a big part with only one winner in the past two decades carting more than 11st 1lb to victory. That makes it a tall order on the trends for Dalton Highway, Sharjah and Grandmaster Flash.

Horses aged older than six have a modest strike-rate which is a concern for 10-year-old De Name Escapes Me along with Mutadaffeq.

There is a strong trainer trend for Willie Mullins in this race given he’s won the past three runnings but none of his hopefuls this year tick the boxes.

So we have managed to cut the field down to just four — Run For Mary, Princess Zoe, Takarengo and A Wave Of The Sea.

You can make a case for all of them and they are each-way prices but RUN FOR MARY won nicely at Bellewstown latest when seeing out the 2m1f trip really well.

She ran really well when second at last year’s Galway Festival and will be right there again.
