SEEFOOD doesn't have a chaser's pedigree and was slightly disappointing when sent into Grade company after a fine start over timber but he's a class act and Dessie Hughes should have him ready for his chasing bow. Raise Hell did reasonably well over timber and ran very well for a long way on his debut over fences at Listowel. He'll strip fitter for the run and looks a big threat. He easily holds Pass The Hat on that last run so Dushybeag, who did reasonably well over timber and was always more likely to be a chaser, could prove more of a threat.
