Good Fella hasn't really progressed from his novice days but likes this track and has dropped to a fair mark. He wasn't far behind Sweet Shock at Punchestown a fortnight ago and can take his revenge on these terms. Boland's Corner is 10lb higher than when scoring at Limerick in October but has run very well subsequently and should be in the shake-up. Mubrook is looking a bit high in the weights but the progressive Missgiloney looks capable of better. LOCHAN LACHA is only 1lb higher than when scoring over 3m here two years ago and gets the vote. He's been alternating between hurdles and fences in recent runs and looks on a very fair mark for this. Schinkel hasn't had much experience but is a nice type who probably found 3m stretching his stamina last time.
