Torremuelle has won once in 26 starts over fences and appeared to find this trip too short at Naas last time. Nina Carberry has her second runner as a trainer with Blaze Of Fire who hasn't shown much over fences to date and makes his handicap debut. William Wordsworth has never won over fences though is still likely to attract support on the balance of his form but Reality Dose has run poorly since scoring at Naas in January. Wrong Turn's form in hunter events hardly inspires confidence though he starts his handicap career from a very lowly mark, but this can go to WHOSAIDSO. He's hardly the most consistent of performers but has returned after a long absence in decent form and his recent runs over hurdles will have put him straight for this.
