Ainm Spartacus has been given a break since a poor run at Limerick and his jumping left plenty to be desired on his earlier starts over fences. That Beats Banaher has won four times between the flags but hasn't done so well over regulation fences while punters must be having nightmares about Bundle Of Fun, who has now run 16 times over fences without winning and has started favourite in most of them including the last five. He's one to avoid so TRABAJO is given the nod. Shark Hanlon's charge was in good form over timber at this time a year ago and was having his first start since October when setting the pace at the Galway Festival before fading. He'll be better for that experience and has more scope than most of these.
