SALSARETTA made it two from two over fences with a victory over the useful Agusta Gold at Punchestown on New Year's Eve and the seven-year-old, who has always been held in high regard at Closutton, can land a hat-trick here. Caravation was a disappointing favourite in handicap company last time but can't be discounted in first-time cheekpieces, with course winner Moskovite another contender for prize money if at her best.

MITCHOUKA made a winning start to life in the care of Gearoid O'Loughlin when taking a beginners' chase over course and distance earlier this month and the six-year-old, who has acquitted himself well in Graded company in the past, has every chance of building on that on his return to the handicap ranks. Kildorrery made some eye-catching progress late on at Fairyhouse last month and is worth keeping an eye on here, while Tikkanen Express wasn't disgraced at Leopardstown over Christmas and makes each-way appeal off the same rating.

A change of tack has inspired a revival in the former Ditcheat inmate SOME MAN, who landed back-to-back point-to-point victories in October, before making it a hat-trick of wins for his new trainer David Christie with a clear-cut success at Clonmel last month. He could take plenty of beating on current form and is preferred to Mighty Stowaway, who himself has been thriving in the pointing field of late. Stand Up And Fight is worth monitoring on his belated return to racing under Rules, while Ucello Conti won over course and distance in this sphere last season and has all the attributes to bounce back in first-time blinkers.

In an open race the marginal preference is for ASSEMBLE, who failed to fire in a Grade 1 last time but his two previous victories suggest that he can make his mark at this level. French Dynamite accounted for a useful rival when winning here a couple of weeks ago and he could prove to be the main threat to the selection. Although, Front View and Drury also merit respect.
