CADSPEED was a very unfortunate loser here in December when falling at the last while clear. He disappointed on his return to action at Thurles two months later but may have been feeling the effects of that mishap and is given another chance. Page Turner had shown a bit of promise in bumpers and over hurdles before a very encouraging debut over fences at Cork but Savello hasn't shown much in three starts over fences. Raggletagglegypsy and Twentypoundluck have shown the occasional signs of potential but will need to do better while the five-year-old Key Account has time on his side and could be one for the future.
