Hello Louie ran a couple of fine races in July but has failed to finish his last three. He was in front when falling at the second last at Bellewstown last month and a clear round should see him enter the equation. North Star Lad caught the eye on his debut behind St Maxime at Galway where he stayed on nicely from the rear but all form lines point to ZADARSKA. Willie Mullins' charge made a very promising debut over hurdles at Bellewstown and though beaten twice subsequently he's been thereabouts and this looks a simpler task. Kane River can prove best of the remainder.
