He'llberemembered rarely runs on the Flat and won a Grade A chase at Leopardstown in January. Marty's Magic hasn't done as well as expected though he'll have found 1m4f too short at Dundalk last time and could still improve. Moon Dice has also disappointed after a very promising start to his career though the presence of Nina Carberry on board is a bonus. Passage Vendome has been alternating between hurdles and fences in decent company and has a bumper victory to his credit while Rory O'Moore is a useful handicap hurdler whose last run on the Flat was a fine second over this trip at Galway in October. He should go well but this can go to STORM AWAY. She won two bumpers around this time a year ago and had the cobwebs blown away after a long absence in a Listed contest at Limerick last month.
