Clara More has shown plenty of promise in both starts over fences and today's longer trip should be in his favour. He jumps well and looks certain to go close while Lisrose should have learned plenty from her opening run over the bigger obstacles at Kilbeggan in May, though she could just need the run. OUR GIRL LUCY was only moderate over hurdles but looked much more like a chaser when runner-up to the useful Jacksonslady at Killarney. She jumped very well that day and with the longer trip certain to suit she's given the nod. King Malik was consistent over timber but chasing should be his game as he's from the family of Rhinestone Cowboy and Wichita Lineman.
