RAJSALAD pulled clear with a promising Willie Mullins-trained debutant at Cork last month, and with improvement on the cards, he’s taken to get his head in front this time for Conor O’Dwyer. Kalkas heads up the dangers on the back of his Navan debut fifth for Henry de Bromhead, with Rocky’s Howya and Monkstreet another couple to consider.
Last year’s winner CAPPACURRY ZAK hinted strongly at a revival when fifth over hurdles here earlier this month, so is worth siding with reverted to fences for the first time this term. Kavanaghs Corner arrives at the top of his game so is feared most, while Out Sam is another well worth considering following his recent fourth in a cross-country event at Cheltenham just under 3 weeks ago.
STAKER WALLACE sets a good standard here and arrives in good form from the pointing scene, so looks the way to go. Both Fanamix and Super Citizen can boast recent wins in points though, so should ensure Enda Bolger’s gelding doesn’t have things all his own way.
Connections have persevered with PONT AVAL, a bumper winner back in April 2019, and it would be no surprise to see her make a successful return over hurdles for Willie Mullins. Atlantic Fairy is feared most ahead of Patty D.

Quite a few potential improvers, not least LAND JET, who is expected to leave his previous form well behind now handicapping and makes plenty of appeal. Last month’s course and distance winner Moonlight Glory and Forrard Away are among the other likely principals.
GRADY HOLLOW made his second point start a winning one in October and representing an in-form yard, he makes plenty of appeal. Fourneux D’isanka and Blazing Khal are likely to give their running.
