Elysian Rock was very novicey on his chasing bow at Thurles 10 days ago and will have learnt from the experience. He can go well as can Dolly Hall, who will find this trip much more to her liking after a fair chasing debut over 2m1f at Clonmel. Outlaw Kid repaid strong support to land an ordinary maiden over timber at Thurles last October and he looks a chasing type but this can go to SPRING THE QUE. Robert Tyner's charge is more experienced over fences than most of these and should have won by now but his second to the promising Head Of The Posse at Ballinrobe in September was a good effort and he can finally get off the mark. Point-to-point and hurdles winner Gold Cygnet looks the type to do well over fences and is worth monitoring in the market.
