CATCH ME and On The Way Out have been racing in much better company and have been given an opportunity here. The former has finished in front of his rival on his two latest starts behind Stonemason and though he hasn't won for a while can return to winning ways. Allee Garde is progressing nicely and wasn't disgraced behind Bobs Worth at Cheltenham. He had earlier won very easily at Down Royal and looks a major threat. Aran Concerto was landing a Grade 1 chase at Fairyhouse a year ago but hasn't improved over fences and also has a Grade 1 success to his credit over timber though that was back in 2007. Clan Tara has reverted back to hurdles recently after a couple of falls over fences and it was a very good effort to finish fourth behind Raz De Maree at Cork last month.
