Aidan O'Brien doesn't have many jumpers so Maasai is interesting though he was beaten a long way on his debut in November. SPRINGBELLE, a winning point-to-pointer, will be racing over this trip for the first time over hurdles and with her stamina likely to come into play she looks the one to be on. Lily Of The Moor doesn't quite seem to have improved as expected though she didn't perform badly in a very tough handicap at Fairyhouse last month. Polish Partisan has disappointed since a good run behind Chancol at Punchestown but better is expected from Lo Siento now getting a stiff test. Massini's Brook landed a Clonmel bumper in November and has the pedigree to do well in long distance hurdles.
