TEELIN STAR has long been regarded as a potentially very useful chaser and the dual point-to-point winner had no problems landing a Listowel bumper on heavy ground last month. He'll be at short odds for this debut over regulation fences and has been found a nice start. He's A Delight won three times between the flags and was last seen winning a maiden hurdle by eight lengths at Downpatrick a year ago. Noel Meade's horses have been going well so the lack of a run shouldn't be too much of a problem. Kildare Blowin hasn't fulfilled early promise but Tales Of Milan did well enough over hurdles and he's bred for this game so is one to keep an eye on.
