ARCADIAN SUNRISE was no match for an easy winner on his hurdling debut at Tramore on New Year's Day but John Queally's gelding can go one better without a rival of that calibre in this contest. Behind The Curtain has placed on his last three outings and merits respect, along with Whatsnotoknow, who contested a hot contest at Leopardstown over Christmas, and Wingin A Prayer.

Festival D'ex looks an exciting individual for Gordon Elliott having followed up his Land Rover Bumper win at Punchestown with a fluent display at Navan last month on his first outing over timber. He is entitled to improve from that effort but he meets rivals who possess a strong level of form and a chance is taken with VIS TA LOI. Third at Limerick in a Grade 2 last month, that was a likeable display where he found plenty for pressure and the six-year-old could have more to offer. Stable companion Monkfish and Run Wild Fred appear best of the remainder.

TEXARD got off the mark on his third start for Gordon Elliott at Cork earlier this month and the manner of that victory suggests the five-year-old could have more to offer on his first outing in handicap company. Bajan Excell receives plenty of weight being a juvenile and is respected following his Limerick success on St Stephen's Day, while Accidental Rebel and Pakens Rock are both open to improvement in this sphere.

HARDLINE came down at the last in a Grade 1 at Leopardstown over the Christmas period but he can be given another chance, having found just Min too good in the John Durkan two starts ago. Real Steel was a couple of places behind the selection on that occasion and could give him plenty to think about here, while Footpad is the clear pick of the remaining trio.
