Liam Lennon won this last year and prolific winning point-to-pointer TAMMYS HILL looks the one to beat though the only fly in the ointment is that he's not the best jumper of regulation fences. The youngster Commanchewardance surprised some better fancied rivals when landing a hunter chase at Cork and he's probably got some more improvement in him, a remark that also applies to the other six-year-old Living Next Door, a comfortable winner at The Pigeons in March. The Mull won over a slightly shorter trip here in March and shouldn't be trouble by the longer trip.
