Splurge ran his best race over fences when third to Any Bets over the C&D last month but that was his 10th start over fences without managing to lose his maiden tag. Westmeath Bachelor isn't the most consistent of performers and appears to need a longer trip and more testing conditions while the remainder are all out of form including LIGHTENING SKY. However, he won this a year ago and reverts to fences after 11 unsuccessful attempts over timber since that lone chasing victory and the opposition here is no better than it was last year. Molinero ran the occasional good race over timber but he's hardly picked his feet up in two starts over fences.
