Formscan - HERMANN CLERMONT was no match for the 129-rated Time Leader here, but faces nothing of that calibre this time and is taken to boost his profile with a third career success. He's still relatively lightly raced in this discipline and should have few issues with the rise to 3m2f. Shanroe Street won a steadily-run race at Perth and is taken seriously now turned out quickly, while Slievegar is dangerous to underestimate too.
