BROG DEAS, three times a winner on the Flat, made the experienced Everything Zain pull out the stops at Thurles on his hurdling debut and should go one better. Casual Creeper was beaten a long way and may need more time while Glendaars Best and Hazariban were also behind though the latter stayed on at the finish. Danequest has shown up well in all three starts over timber and should be winning soon, as should Magical Moon, who has a similar level of form.
