Once again these are mainly jumpers and GALIANNA, who won this in 2010, looks set to score again. He's been in fine form over timber recently beating a big field at Navan before a cracking run in a Wexford handicap and looks on a fair mark. Hunting Tower hasn't been seen since October but landed a Newcastle handicap over this trip the previous month and has to be considered despite the absence. Headford Flyer won over fences at Wexford last month but Concrete And Clay has been going very well over hurdles and has to be considered back on the level where he has won three times. Idarah won a handicap over hurdles at Naas in February and though well beaten in two subsequent starts they were at Cheltenham and Aintree.
