Fence Me In landed a point-to-point last month and made a reasonable hunter chase debut at Fairyhouse a week later. THE TOURARD MAN is a progressive type who was an impressive winner at Dromahane last month. This can prove within his capabilities before going on to better things. Cork Citizen gained his third success between the flags at Templemore a couple of weeks ago but the main threat may come from Winter Magic. Jimmy Mangan's charge has won three of his four starts in points and started favourite before falling in a strong hunter chase at Limerick in December. Bang On Time could prove the pick of the remainder.
