CARLITOS BAY was travelling nicely over course and distance in November when an error four from home brought an end to his chances, but he was second against useful opposition at Down Royal the time before and should play a leading part here with a clear round. Young Paddymc is sure to be popular having finished second at Limerick, although he seems an out-and-out stayer and may not be seen at his best until tried over marathon trips. Roxboro Road is worth keeping an eye on for shrewd connections having not been asked too many questions when fourth at Tramore on his chasing debut.

Gordon Elliott declared five and the best may be Leopardstown winner GUN DIGGER, who seeks to build on his 18-length romp over Christmas. Stablemate Blow By Blow got the better of the selection in a Grade 3 over hurdles last winter but the Cheltenham Festival winner has been slightly disappointing on his most recent outings, while Ben Dundee's jumping has let him down the last twice. A Plus Tard is another useful recruit to Cheveley Park's squad of jumpers, and the Listed winner in France saw off some useful rivals when scoring at Naas. Winter Escape is hard to rule out in search of a hat-trick having landed a Graded contest at Cork back in November.

PEACOCKS SECRET was travelling well and in the mix when falling on his hat-trick bid at Clonmel. He must have leading claims off just a 1lb higher mark and is sure to go close, over a distance he thrives at, if none the worse for that fall. Market's Field was a winner of his only chase start, which came over this trip, and he may be the pick of the JP McManus duo. Oscar Lantern and Take The Cash are worthy of a market check as well.

It might pay to side with SE MO LAOCH in what looks a tricky puzzle for punters to solve. The eight-year-old has been running consistently well for a number of months, gets on well with this jockey (won and placed twice in three starts), and another bold bid is expected. Snugsborough Hall chased home the selection here and backed that up with another solid placed effort at Down Royal. He is likely to be in the shake-up again, while handicap debutant Whisperinthebreeze and Major Destination, equipped with first-time blinkers, are just a couple more with claims.
