Formscan By Vincent Finegan - WAR OF WORDS is flattered by his 3rd placing at Cork just over two weeks ago. He was beaten 20 lengths and would have only finished 4th, but for a last flight faller. That said it is the best recent form on offer here. Top weight Rising Altitude is lightly raced and therefore open to improvement, but hasn't been seen on a racecourse since falling at Ballinrobe in May. The relatively consistant Billybuster cannot be ruled out off bottom weight while Media Baron won a similar contest over the course and distance at this meeting last year.
