Some decent chasers have won this in the past and that should be the case again. Minella For Value makes a very quick reappearance after his run at Galway on Wednesday where he could only stay on at one pace behind Rockshandy. He'll do better with stiffer test which he should get here. LETTER OF CREDIT wasn't beaten far behind Rebel Fitz at Ballinrobe in May but didn't get far on his return to action at Galway last month. He's a nice prospect, however, and is given the nod. Reafadda scored over hurdles on heavy ground last month and has every chance of being a better chaser while Sir Vincent will have learned from his two runs over the bigger obstacles, though he's a bit long in the tooth to be starting a new career. Stop The Clock and Sam Da Vinci are recent hurdles winners who can do well over the bigger obstacles.
