Banna Boirche gave Elusive Ridge weight and a beating at Dundalk in April but he's had 19 tries to break his duck on Turf and is still awaiting a first success. Six Of Hearts has won over this trip but is probably better over 6f and the older horses are conceding 10lb to the three-year-olds. AMONG EQUALS had QIPCO 1000 Guineas heroine Homecoming Queen behind when winning at Limerick last July and, though unraced since, should take all the beating here. Muck'N'Brass won at Dundalk in January but this is tougher and Seanie was a little disappointing at Chester last time, though won't mind the rain-softened ground.
