Paddy O Dee is better known as a chaser but is well enough handicapped over hurdles to make his presence felt. Eddie Zero hasn't won since his victory over the C&D in March last year but there have been occasional signs of a revival and he's not out of this. Vapiano made a promising start over fences here last month before a moderate run back over timber at Navan so all formlines point to DAYTIME DREAMER. Jimmy Lambe's charge is 7lb higher than when scoring over the C&D on fast ground in June but a couple of recent runs at Dundalk will have put him straight and this looks well within his capabilities.
