Coolaghknock Glebe wasn't beaten far in a big field of maidens at Punchestown and has always looked as though this longer trip would suit. Lord Adare came here for his debut in a bumper in December and duly obliged. He should do even better over hurdles and looks a threat to all. SPA HILL had been running well enough in maiden company before a moderate handicap debut at Fairyhouse. Back in this grade he's handed the vote to make amends. Tawseef, who won three times on the Flat in the UK, wasn't suited by dropping back to the minimum at Gowran. Todd gained his only victory so far on the Flat here and has shown glimpses of ability over hurdles.
