Protaras, who had a recent run on the Flat, won a handicap over fences in November off 122 so the fact that he's 11lb lower back over timber suggests he's well handicapped. Highbrow Blue is even better treated as he earned a mark of 130 for his victory on his chasing debut and races off 20lb lower here despite having gone well over hurdles. GIVE ME A BREAK is difficult to get away from after her impressive victory when stepped up to this trip for the first time at Tipperary. That was only her sixth start and with more to come she can defy a 9lb rise. Kilmainham has only won once in 21 starts but has dropped in the weights as a consequence and his last two runs suggest he can double his tally soon. Bearly Legal has returned from a very long break in good shape and can go well along with Spacious Sky, who should be suited by tackling this trip for the first time.
