On to the hurdles track for the last three races. Arden Belle scored between the flags in April but that was on heavy ground while Dashing Lady, another point-to-point winner, has been performing moderately in handicaps. Cool Klan appears best at around this trip on fast ground and his overall form gives him an obvious chance to get off the mark but GROVE FIELD should have his measure. Colm Murphy's charge looked a soft ground specialist on his earlier efforts but proved that wasn't the case with his best run to date when narrowly beaten by Another Ambition in a Cork handicap a month ago. He was conceding the winner 7lb and this looks a less daunting task.
