Almost all of these have ben jumping including the bottom trio, who are all 3lb out of the handicap. That certainly won't be a problem for either BLACK SPOT ON or Gold Not Silver, who have both scored over timber recently. The latter looks as though he'll need even further than this so it's John Woods' charge, who scored at Down Royal on St Patrick's Day and is rated just 47 on the level, who is handed the vote. Hurricane Sky was in excellent form on the Flat around this time a year ago and has been running well over hurdles so he's definitely on the short-list but the only victory of Seeyouallincoppers came on very fast ground, as did Light Storm Cass' only success. Mizyen was having his first start for Dessie Hughes since arriving from the UK when a close third over hurdles last month and, with that under his belt, could get into the picture.
