JETT's sole win over fences to date came over this C&D and he has been highly tried since that victory. He faced a tough task in a valuable handicap at Leopardstown earlier in the month and he should find this race more winnable. Westerner Point was a narrow winner at Fairyhouse earlier in the month and he should be in the mix once again, while Kilcarry Bridge and Goulane Chosen also warrant consideration.

KATE APPLEBY SHOES was disappointing when finishing behind Magic Of Light and Youcantcallherthat in a Grade 2 over 2m4f here last month but her previous form suggests that she is a player today. Two starts ago the daughter of Flemensfirth accounted for West Bridge at Limerick and that effort last time out is clearly not her true form. The aforementioned pair of Magic Of Light and Youcantcallherthat should go well once again, while Routes Choice also makes the shortlist.

Gun Digger impressed when winning at Down Royal and warrants plenty of respect returning to a venue where he won in his bumper days, but NOT MANY LEFT shades the verdict in receipt of 2lb. Jessica Harrington's charge built on his Leopardstown fifth behind the useful Flawless Escape, who has since placed in a high-class handicap at the Dublin Racing Festival, when bolting up at Navan and a trip to Cheltenham next month could still be on the cards with a stylish win here. The other Gigginstown runners Blow By Blow and Roaring Bull also have bits and pieces of chances.

  • Gold = Horse has a 50% or better win record

CASTLEBROOK ran with promise on his debut over hurdles when second to Shady Operator at Cork in November and this point-to-point winner should benefit from the step up to 3m. Massey's Wood has shown a fair level of form and is respected with the extra half mile likely to play to his strengths, while others to consider include Robin The Hare and Heroesandvillains with the pair capable of better than what they have achieved so far.

SIR CARNO appreciated going back into handicap company when winning at Punchestown in good style over 2m4f and shaped as though he wouldn't be inconvenienced by a step up in trip. A 6lb rise looks more than fair for Gordon Elliott's gelding and he looks capable of striking again in what doesn't look the strongest of races. Nerual was runner-up at Punchestown when last seen and she could improve for first-time blinkers, while Nick Lost looks open to improvement making his handicap debut after a couple of fair efforts in maiden hurdles.
