Crezic has a definite chance representing the same trainer/owner combination that won this contest 12 months ago while Whisperinthebreeze can step forward from his hurdles deut at Navan, where he finished one place behind a subsequent easy winner in third. At Your Ease and Smoking Gun are others to keep an eye but slight preference is for I AM SAILING. The Flemensfirth gelding has been purchased by leading owner JP McManus since finishing third on his NH debut in a bumper at Navan and being gelded and switching to hurdles are both reasons for potential improvement.
WHISPERINTHEBREEZE shaped well when third on hurdles debut at Gowran last month, and normal improvement should see him at least go close here. Crezic and At Your Ease are both open to progress also, and head the dangers in a big-field maiden hurdle.
