'Cry For The Moon has outstanding chance' - Culloty.

What they say Vincent Ward, trainer of End Of The Affair "It's a wide-open race. She's in great form and the ground seems to be in her favour. She has a lot of weight to carry and that will be tough, but she keeps galloping and the way she won last time meant she earned a shot at this." Eoin Griffin, trainer of Admiral Barry "He's competing from the opposite end of the handicap to that which he won from last year as he's 20lb higher. It'll be a difficult for him, but he's freshened up since his last run and will hopefully give a good account."

Robbie Hennessy, trainer of Table Mountain and Gretzky "We're stepping Table Mountain up to two miles for the first time, but he has been running like this trip will be no problem to him. We're also going into the unknown with Gretzky and just hope he gives a good account of himself." Philip Dempsey, trainer of Prospectorous "He gets the trip over hurdles, but has never run over it on the Flat, bar in the Punchestown charity race. He's won twice around Galway over a mile and if he stays he should run well." Dermot Weld, trainer of Natural High "Robbie [McNamara] has won the race a couple of times for me and he knows the horse well. It looks every bit as competitive as previous years, but he won well at Limerick last month and has shown he acts on the track. He's won at Galway and been placed there a couple of times."

Rebecca Curtis, trainer of Praxiteles "It's a very competitive race but he's improved a bit at home since his last race. He did it very nicely last time out at Worcester, he should have a good chance. He's nearer the top of the ratings." James Lambe, trainer of Silk Hall "He's in very good order. He doesn't have the ideal draw out in 18, but Strawberry O'Connor has won this race before and knows his way around very well. It's an ultra-competitive race and I still think he'll have to improve from his win at the Curragh to win it, though I do see him running a big race."

Willie Mullins, trainer of Rattan "He ran well in the Ascot Stakes and we probably ran him back a bit soon at the Curragh after that. Going back up in trip should suit and he'll like the ground." John Kiely, trainer of Oneeightofamile "His weight was raised too much in the Galway Hurdle, that's why we took him out of that race and he runs here. He should run all right. He's in good form and we're hoping for the best."

Jim Culloty, trainer of Cry For The Moon "He gets the trip, will like the ground and handled Galway okay when he ran at the track last year. I think he has an outstanding chance."

Sabrina Harty, trainer of Kalann "He's won over a mile and a half on the Flat and over two miles over hurdles, so should be fine over this trip. He has a very relaxed way of running and the two miles will suit that too. The only negative is the draw [16]. This race can be rough at the best of times and you need all the luck you can get." Tom Mullins, trainer of Fosters Cross "He's crying out for two miles on the Flat. He's at the bottom of the handicap with a good 5lb claimer on board and I'll be disappointed if he doesn't give a very good account."


Sabrina Harty: "only negative is the draw"
