The last time Tarla ran over hurdles she won a Grade 3 by 12l on heavy ground at Punchestown. She reverts to timber after falling on her two latest starts over fences and must go close but she hasn't faced anything of REBEL FITZ's class so far and may have to play second fiddle. Davy Russell returns for just the one ride today and his mount, who won the Galway Hurdle in August, has the class to concede weight all round. Oilily won this last year when Won In The Dark was third but hasn't been seen since July and though Rathlin scored on his return to hurdling last month he's much better known as a chaser these days.
