Sitcom won two minor races over hurdles and the daughter of Oscar is much more likely to make a chaser. ART OF LOGISTICS beat the useful Midnight Oil over hurdles at Fairyhouse in February and his later defeat came in a Grade 1. He could be a really smart prospect over fences and is taken to make a winning start though it won't be easy against some decent opposition. Nearest The Pin has been coming up against classy performers over fences and is very unfortunate not to have won. He'll make a bold bid again as will Usa, three times a winner over hurdles who scored on the Flat at Laytown three weeks ago. Passage Vendome has shown nothing in two starts over fences but there's plenty of time for him to come good.
