URANO, three times a winning bumper in France, has yet to score for Willie Mullins but he's run well enough and today's longer trip can enable him to get off the mark. Bell Weir also looked as though a longer trip was required when only fourth at Clonmel last time and his overall form puts him in the picture while Harlekin made a really nice start over timber at Cork last month and will have come on for the experience. All Day Long was beaten a long way over the minimum trip here last time despite finishing runner-up but is another who will appreciate stepping up in distance.
