DUNROE BOY has done everything but get his head in front over both hurdles and fences recently and this looks a good opportunity to finally do so. Beaten a short-head by Preswell Boy in a Tramore handicap on New Year's Day, he's run well in both subsequent starts over timber and this won't take much winning. Hasty Times has yet to win a race of any description and has only shown moderate ability over fences though he hasn't been disgraced in better company and should get into the shake-up. The Book Thief has had 19 starts over fences without winning and though Tipped Up Harry is a recent winner over hurdles it was a poor contest and he's since been well beaten.
