CURLEY BILL landed a lucrative handicap on the Flat here on Friday and has to be the selection if he's given the nod to take part as he's also been progressing over timber. Notable Graduate's only start over timber resulted in a reasonable effort behind Ned Buntline at Leopardstown. He hasn't been in the best of form and was well beaten on the Flat here on Monday though he should find this a lot less daunting. Black Zero has shown some promise on testing ground and, along with Roscommon bumper runner-up Tarogato, looks best of the remainder.
