ART OF LOGISTICS makes his hurdling debut with a penalty for his victory in a bumper at Roscommon last month but he looks one to follow over timber as his dam was a winning hurdler from a stout jumping family. He can make a winning debut against opposition who have mainly looked moderate including the consistent Enchanted Forest, who has been looking as though he needs a stiffer test of stamina. False Prophet produced his one good run over today's C&D on Boxing Day and Forced Kin has shown a bit of promise in bumpers. But it's winning point-to-pointer Shershewill who looks the main threat, though potential punters would need to forgive a very poor final run when tailed off at Sligo.
