Third at Tramore last time, MARTY'S MAGIC is quick enough between the obstacles but needs to brush up his hurdling. However, this is only his third start over timber and he's taken to improve past Long House Saint and Millie Le Bach, who have a combined total of 17 starts over hurdles without a win. Little Rocky finished behind Long House Saint at Ballinrobe last time and it's even harder to make a case for any of the remainder.
