Caoimhe's Delight, a Grade 2 novice winner at Limerick in March, makes her handicap debut over fences from what doesn't look a bad mark. Muzak completed a hat-trick last summer and will have needed his run at Limerick in March so he's on the shortlist but it's CAIM HILL who gets the verdict. Philip Fenton's veteran has been going well enough in tough handicaps and ran well on the Flat at Clonmel earlier this month so should be tuned up to gain the 14th success of his career. Sammy Black has run well in novice company and a mark of 122 doesn't look too excessive on his handicap debut while Harpsy Cord has been slowly dropping in the weights and looked ready to take advantage soon when a close second at Tramore.
