Earcomesthedream has won his last two at Hereford and stays well. He's still fairly treated but Monty's Revenge must have a chance of reversing recent form with Peter Pritchard's gelding on better terms and in a first-time visor. BURNTHILL was just beaten over C&D on his latest start in March under claimer Gerald Quinn and reserves his best for this track. He can make the most of the weight he receives from the unexposed Whistling Senator. Pairc Na Gcapall has plenty of stamina but remains a maiden over hurdles.
