Auenschutze hasn't been in the best of form but the quicker ground will be a help on his handicap debut as will the booking of Ruby Walsh. Accordion To Paddy was in cracking form at this time a year ago over hurdles but has shown very little so far over fences including on his handicap bow at Fairyhouse last time. D's Trix last won a race on very fast ground at Tramore in August and is only 4lb higher so should be capable of getting involved but Information is better handicapped over hurdles than fences and faces a stiff task. DUN MASC jumped well and was always in the front rank when scoring at Downpatrick last month where the good ground was a help. He's been raised 7lb but can go in again while in such good heart.
