Goal lost his maiden tag over hurdles at the ninth attempt at Perth and makes his handicap debut with a big weight though he looks capable of achieving a higher mark in the future. Xsquared ran a fine race behind Sir Lynx here last month and has had a couple of runs on the Flat and though City Line is consistent he's now had 23 starts over timber without winning. OSCAR WINGS hasn't had much experience but showed that she's a progressive type with a smooth victory at Sligo and a 6lb rise doesn't look enough to prevent a follow-up. Pennys Tune has been going well and with Barry Geraghty in the plate for the first time looks the main threat in an open event.
