Here For The Craic, a bumper winner at Cork in May, needs to bounce back from a moderate performance when fancied at Killarney in August. BISHOPS ROAD was the easy winner of a point-to-point in March and made a winning debut under Rules at Killarney in May. He looks destined for better things and should take this along the way. Devils Paintbrush is obviously well regarded as he made a successful bumper debut when favourite at Kilbeggan before a fair run in a better class event here. He's bred for this job so is definitely on the shortlist. Some Article made an impressive bumper debut but hasn't shown much to date over jumps.
