Ta Blazes is only moderate over hurdles but wouldn't need to be a world-beater to make a winning start over fences. Littletown Lass is also a modest performer over timber but she didn't run badly on her chasing bow at Tramore and will have come on for the experience. Vapiano started off his career with quite a big reputation but has come nowhere near to living up to it so connections will be hoping jumping fences will bring about a change in fortune. LOOKOUTNOW was in fine form over hurdles at this time a year ago and has made steady progress in three runs over the bigger obstacles. He wouldn't need to progress much from his third behind Benefficient at Down Royal last time, though there's little between him and Blaze Of Fire on an earlier run at Tramore and Tommy Carberry's charge looks the main threat.
