EQUITY SWAP didn't get very far before falling at Killarney last time. But he wasn't beaten far in better company than this at Punchestown before that and should go close here with a similar effort. Fellow Indian has been thereabouts in bumpers and will figure if transferring that form to hurdles but Captain Carleton makes more appeal on his second at Down Royal in June on his debut over timber. Fiord Cottage could also figure but the remainder are harder to fancy.
