Captainofthefleet has won on the Flat since finishing third over track and trip back in April and should go well. Fire Belt was also placed at this track last year though he's failed to figure since while Turica held on for second at Tramore early this year and could figure on her return. Stoney went close in a bumper at Thurles last time having posted a modest debut over timber before that but a chance is taken on KICK ON BOSS in this. Willie McCreery's charge has shown decent form in bumpers and the half-brother to winning hurdler Mick Finan may well be good enough to make a winning start over obstacles.
