Rory's Brother improved to claim third over fences at Tipperary last time but Kandinski's effort at Sligo looks stronger form. The latter finished a close-up second on his chasing debut and should make a bold bid, though BACK OFF MATE is just preferred. Arthur Moore's charge also found only one too good at the same meeting at Sligo but finished a street clear of the third-placed horse and can open his account in this. Angelas Money, All Day Long, Sizing India and point-to-point winner Leahs Melody are all chasing debutants to note.
