Tyrone House runs the occasional decent race but this should mainly concern the top three. Akatara was having her 36th start over hurdles when finally getting off the mark over this course and distance three weeks ago. She was obviously suited by stepping up in trip and her jockey's claim ensures she receives plenty of weight from her two main rivals. ALELCHI INOIS has arrived from France with a big reputation which looked justified when making a winning debut for Willie Mullins here last month. That was over the minimum trip and he takes a big leap in distance but looks a chaser in the making so it should suit and he gets the nod. Soweheard comfortably beat Fanaan Aldaar at Downpatrick before finding Indigo Rock too strong at Hexham where his jumping left plenty to be desired.
