2mHeavy (Soft to Heavy in places)
Dis Donc has struck the crossbar on his last three starts and should be in the shake-up again, while Group 2 Flat winner Pallasator can build on his fifth behind subsequent Grade 1 scorer Next Destination at Naas. It's probably too soon to be writing off Antey, who ran well at Leopardstown before disappointing over 2m4f here, but THE HOLY ONE rates the one to beat. The smart bumper performer ran a shade keen on his hurdles debut at Naas, making most before tiring into third, and if settling better in Robbie Power's hands this time, he looks sure to go close.
PALLASATOR would win this by a long way at his peak were this on the Flat, and he really ought to improve considerably for his hurdling bow at Naas. If that is the case he can prove too good for Dis Donc who seems sure to be competitive, though Antey is also of interest for the in-form Willie Mullins stable.
