Abbey Lane scored twice for Gordon Elliott on fast ground in the summer of 2010 and has joined Willie Mullins but hasn't run since April the following year. Seriatim beat Whispering Hills narrowly at Punchestown last May and will have needed his run behind Seefood in November while Munsaab didn't look at home over fences at Thurles last time after winning a handicap over hurdles at Naas. Back In A Tic also won a handicap at Naas before racing in better company and should get involved with her allowance but it's FAHAMORE who looks the one to be on. Eddie Harty's charge was winning a Limerick handicap last month for the second successive season and defied a big rise in the weights. He's quite lightly raced and with progress expected can score again.
