DOMINATION makes his debut over fences but his overall form on the Flat and over hurdles, where he has a total of seven victories, will make him difficult to beat providing he jumps round. Chestnut Charlie won just once over timber but looks as though he may do better over fences after a good run behind Touch Of Eden at Navan. Ludo Et Emergo has been up against serious opposition in his two starts over fences but may need a longer trip than this. Dual hurdles winner Federici was in very good form at the turn of the year but was beaten a long way at Gowran in February.
