CILLASEAL won over fences off this mark here a year ago. Recent form has been uninspiring but there should be a bit more give in the ground today and that will suit. Noel Kelly's stayer gets the nod ahead of La Bacouetteuse, who is still a maiden over hurdles but has been lightly-raced and won on the Flat earlier this year. Monbeg and Hartforth have the past form to figure while Delightfully may prove the pick of Lucinda Russell's two runners.
