This shouldn't take much winning and THYNETOCATCHER, runner-up in a Grade 3 over hurdles last November, may be good enough to make a winning debut over fences. Ashbury has been racing against some decent opposition over fences and ran well enough when stepped up in trip at Tipperary last time to suggest she will be the main threat. Kalico Kim will probably do better when tackling marathons and it's difficult to know what to make of Hill Rock, who won a couple of minor point-to-points earlier in the year.
