This is a strong race for the money and though things haven't gone according to plan with TURBAN, who has been beaten five times since making a winning debut over hurdles at Thurles a year ago, he's been taking on better company and it was no disgrace to go down by 2l to Tofino Bay at Punchestown in April. He gets the vote though Shrapnel had been racing over much further before reverting to this trip and gaining his first victory at Galway last month and should be in the firing line. Kilavalley made all and impressed with his jumping on only his second start over hurdles at Galway and will take some catching in that kind of mood so he has to be a threat but promising chaser Harpsy Cord should do better when returning to fences. Auenschutze is another who should win races over the bigger obstacles this season though he has been running well over timber and only just failed to catch Tap Night at Ayr earlier this month.
