Winning point-to-pointer Moyas Charm hasn't done too much wrong over timber and has gone well here in the past. Her allowance will help though Totally Couture looked one to follow when a close third behind a couple of promising rivals at Navan. He'll certainly be suited by this longer trip and it will be a surprise if he's not in the mix though this looks another for the Willie Mullins camp via UN BEAU ROMAN. He couldn't quite cope with Un Beau Matin in a bumper at Lyon last November but that winner is looking a really nice prospect over hurdles for Gordon Elliott so the form should stand up. Jamies Benefit may prove best of the remainder.
