It's All An Act won two bumpers at Perth under AP McCoy last month and should make his presence felt on his hurdling debut while Some Article ran his best race over hurdles at Gowran last time and looks certain to make further progress. The Mooch won a Wexford bumper in July then ran well on his hurdling debut but disappointed at Clonmel three weeks ago. Kildunne has more experience than most but probably needs further so it's winning point-to-pointer INISHTURK LAD who gets the nod as his run behind Minella Fiveo at Navan is the best recent form on view.
