Drumlister is better over fences but he's rated 14lb lower over timber and should get into the frame in this moderate contest, despite a big weight. ALL HONOURS, who was in winning form at Tramore in April, showed good pace for a long way before fading on his reappearance at Punchestown and should be ready for this. Noble Call has been busy on the Flat and has only run three times over hurdles though he's still a maiden after 27 career starts. Winning point-to-pointer Dawn Flyer is consistent enough at this lowly level and can make her presence felt from her position in the handicap.
