Dazzlers Day seems best on really testing ground as it was when he scored over timber at Limerick in December and for his latest run over fences here last month. Caddy Man finished just in front of him that day and he's another who would appreciate some rain and, though both should go well, it's COOLNAGORNA GIGGS who is handed the vote despite his stable's lack of recent winners. He jumped well on his chasing debut in what looked a decent event won by Moiqen at Thurles and the winning point-to-pointer looks set for a good career over fences. War Of Words, another winner between the flags, makes his debut over regulation fences and has done well enough over hurdles to be considered along with winning hurdler Playtime Ben.
