Listen Dear may struggle to contain ALISIER D'IRLANDE (nap), who was clear of everything behind the improving Ballyoisin at Killarney.

Classy sort and officially the joint best horse in this contest. Second to Ballyoisin at Killarney in May in a Grade Three event and sure to mount a big challenge and may well have even more to offer at the age of eight.
Back to approaching his best form when second in a Killarney Grade 3 last time

Four career wins over fences over trips from two miles to three and on all sorts of going. Pulled up at Punchestown in June after a bad mistake but only has a few pounds to find to get involved if he outs in a clear round.
Recent Flat winner but pulled up last time back jumping; unplaced in this 12 months ago

Rated on a par with Alisier D’Irlande and has his first run since pulling up at Aintree in the Grand national in April. Comes up short at the very highest level but every chance in this company if back to his best.
Top class in the past but no sign of that form last season; lots to prove

Without a win since April last year and yet to score over further than two miles and weakened when tried over this trip in at Gowran Park in 2016. Suspect stamina but the small field may help his chances of getting home today.
Ran well at Ballinrobe but not weighted to reverse those placings with Listen Dear

The winner of this race in 2016 as a nine-year-old but now at the veteran stage. Four wins from nine starts here so clearly handles the track and a good second here last week, looks outclassed in this field though off his current rating.
Prolific round here and second on Sunday; this task looks beyond him though

Trainer Willie Mullins won this in 2012 and 2015 and looks for a third win with the eight-year-old mare. Lightly raced recently and second on both starts this season at Galway and Ballinrobe, upped in trip and every chance today.
Good second in a Galway handicap but then failed odds-on punters at Ballinrobe
