MOSSEY JOE was once regarded as one of Ireland's best chasing prospects but has come nowhere near to achieving those ambitions. However he was racing from a mark of 151 when easily brushed aside by Torpichen at Listowel in September and none of today's rival could get remotely close to that rating. Boxer Georg is a decent performer in these races and almost had his big day when just touched off by Baby Run in the Foxhunters at Cheltenham two years ago. He's the one most likely to take advantage if the selection doesn't come up to scratch. Wrong Turn easily landed a point-to-point at Lemonfield a year ago before falling at Cork a month later and looks best of the remainder.
