Try Stop Me, a winner between the flags at Glenbane in October, attempted to make all on his bumper debut over 2m3f at Naas in February and only succumbed in the latter stages. Traffic Article landed a point at Inch a year ago and showed up well on his bumper debut at Bellewstown in July while Whats On The Menu ran two fine races over today's C&D at the backend of last year and looks a threat to all. CLONARD LAD would probably prefer a little bit further after staying on stoutly behind Fioldubh over 2m2f at Downpatrick but he'll have come on for the run and should provide Willie Mullins with yet another bumper winner.
