Moville is probably better over fences and hasn't been seen since breaking a blood vessel at Listowel in June. Si C'Etait Vrai has some questions to answer after yet another lay-off and Swanfold looks out of his depth but the remaining trio all have a chance of sorts. Silver Friend was second to Waaheb over C&D last month while the once-useful Dancing Tornado was runner-up in a Naas handicap recently and has been knocking on the door again. But the weights appear to point to CAUSE OF CAUSES, who was second in the Galway Hurdle in August and would only need to reproduce that run here to score.
