Derryarkin was due to run over hurdles here yesterday and wouldn't be penalised if successful so he's one to keep an eye on. Drumlister has failed to complete the course in his last two starts over fences and is better handicapped over hurdles unlike TWIN PLAN, who is 16lb lower than over timber. Ruby Walsh was on board last time and takes the ride again on Jimmy Lambe's charge, who looks set to gain his second victory over the bigger obstacles. Emperor Concerto was having just his third start for Gordon Elliott when a good fourth at Sligo and should now be approaching his peak. Drawn N Dank was engaged to run in a beginners chase here yesterday.
