Henry De Bromhead, who won this last year, has two entries this time. Sizing Jo'Burg has plenty of scope though hasn't run since running badly over hurdles at Down Royal in May of last year. Tisamystery is probably the safer bet at present as he returned with a good run behind Un Beau Roman on his chasing debut at Tramore. SILVER TASSIE has won twice over hurdles and was still in touch when falling three out on his latest start and though that was in May and he makes his debut over fences Noel Meade should have him straight enough to make a successful start. Pay No Heed did reasonably well over timber but was always more likely to make a chaser, a remark that also applies to winning point-to-pointer Royal Chief. Bonifacio has come late to fences but made a reasonable start behind Seefood here last month.
