On to the hurdles track and plenty with chances in a big field of maidens. Lord Adare landed a Limerick bumper in December and was made an odds-on chance for his hurdling debut there last month but couldn't cope with Todd. Today's better ground and shorter trip should see him go close. Enjoy Responsibly was also a short-priced favourite when beaten at Limerick and the winning point-to-pointer may need further. Knockrea ran a fine race behind The Winkler at Gowran in January but didn't improve on his next start at Punchestown though testing conditions could have been responsible. Roman General had been running well in handicaps before producing a shocker at Down Royal so it's KILLEENA HOUSE who looks the one to be on. Robert Tyner's mare, successful between the flags in January, dropped back to this trip at Navan last month and gave supporters of the odds-on Whisper Rock a fright.
