Six Stone Ned has been chasing but can revert to hurdles on a lower mark and has to be respected along with the novice Banana Flambre on his handicap debut. Point The Toes is in very good form and will have found the minimum trip too short at Sligo but KING HIGH gained an impressive victory over this trip there a fortnight ago and, as he's still 25lb lower over hurdles than fences, Eoin Doyle's charge looks the one to be on. Courtncatcher is in good heart and a stiff gallop will see him go close as he stays further than this while Lady Of Glencoe makes her handicap debut from what could prove a lenient mark and Ruby Walsh was on board when she landed a Punchestown maiden in May.
