FOR BILL made a promising debut over fences when third at Clonmel on her seasonal return. She should be spot on now after last month's spin over timber and can open her account over the larger obstacles here.

Back Me Up makes her chase debut after a lengthy absence but is a half-sister to a winner over fences and could figure.
