Several of these should go on to better things but MOUNT BENBULBEN has been waiting in the wings for some time and can finally make his debut over fences. A Grade 2 winner over hurdles at Navan in November, his two later efforts were at the highest level and he could be an exciting prospect over the bigger obstacles. Dylan Ross, runner-up to Cash And Go in the Future Champions Novice Hurdle at Leopardstown in December, started a short-priced favourite on his chasing debut at Roscommon earlier this month but jumped moderately and was soon done with. He'll have learnt from that and has to be of interest while Far Away So Close brings the experience of three runs over fences with him and is another on the short-list. He's Our Man, a very progressive hurdler, came up against a really smart novice when narrowly beaten by Tofino Bay at Navan and looks a big threat as does Jenari, who won a Grade 2 novice hurdle at Fairyhouse in April and was in touch when falling at the highest level at Punchestown a couple of weeks later.
