SPACIOUS SKY has shown nothing in two starts over timber but with his stable still flying the former French Flat winner is given the nod in this moderate opener. Knightsone makes his debut over hurdles with a penalty for his bumper success at Roscommon and should make a hurdler while Wot A Shot will enjoy the fast conditions better than most and also has a Flat victory to his credit. The filly Dayrina has decent form to her credit but hardly ever races on ground this quick and Sue And Isi ran very poorly at Roscommon after a promising debut.
