Fastey has won a hunter chase and scored between the flags but is better handicapped over hurdles. Fever Pitch has won over hurdles and fences here but prefers quicker ground and comes here after a break while Marlay Park is still a maiden over fences though he's mainly competed at a higher level and this is more his grade. AGUS A VIC has six victories to his credit over the bigger obstacles and his recent run behind Wellforth at Galway suggests number seven is imminent and he can take this. Fairwood Bob hasn't shown much over fences for a long time and Moncherie prefers quicker going.
