Winning bumper and hurdler MAKE A TRACK has done well over fences, scoring over slightly shorter here a year ago and making a fine reappearance behind the potentially useful White Star Line at Clonmel last month. With further progress likely he should take this before heading for better things. Tinakellylad is a very experienced chaser who was having his 23rd start over fences when making all at Punchestown last time where he defied a last-fence error. He'll ensure the selection has a test while Canaly has managed two victories over fences though never over this far. Letter Of Credit hasn't won over the bigger obstacles and needs to improve but he gets plenty of allowances and is by no means out of this on some of his earlier form.
