DERRINLANNA was runner-up in an amateur riders' sweepstakes over 2m at Naas on her latest outing in October. Peter Fahey's grey had a number of higher-rated rivals behind that day and, if she can translate that form back to hurdles, should take all the beating in this modest contest. Eddie Zero will have needed his run at Gowran last month while Akadyr wasn't disgraced on his reappearance at Limerick and is on a decent mark. Brookville was third at Naas last time and though Dr Proctor needs one to drop out to get a run, he wouldn't be far away if reproducing his third at Thurles last month.
