Cloone Rocket is best known as a chaser and isn't as well handicapped over hurdles but Rolling Rocket isn't without a chance after finding 3m too far at Roscommon as he'd previously run well over the minimum here. Sir Lynx never got into the action at Sligo which was a surprise after his victory on this track but Clancy Strand would be a threat at his best as he's just 1lb higher than when scoring at Naas a year ago. CAPTAIN OCANA returned to form over fences at Wexford and there's no reason why he shouldn't transfer that form to hurdles so he gets the vote as he looks well treated. Rock County was behind Sir Lynx here last month but has since performed with credit over this trip at Bellewstown.
