Gordon Elliott's four-time hurdles winner gained his only Flat win on the all-weather at Dundalk last April but he looks to have been found a good opportunity here. The son of Danehill Dancer is rated 83 on the level and was in excellent form when last seen, finishing second to Sametegal in a Cheltenham hurdle race before finding only a couple too good in the November Handicap at Leopardstown in November. A repeat of that effort will make him extremely difficult to beat, despite the burden of a big weight. Luska Lad is an experienced jumped but hasn't shown his best for some time so the main threat to the selection might be posed by Mister First, who is a strong stayer and won on heavy ground at this venue last January.
