TARTAN SNOW is the highest rated on official figures and gets the nod in this having gone close over course and distance in one of these events last time. Back On The Road has had an outing in a point-to-point since scoring at Roscommon last August and makes his debut for new connections while Tommysteel won both starts in hunter chases last year, including a defeat of Highland Cathedral, and also has a recent run under his belt. Ocarina won a point-to-point last month but hasn't raced over regulation fences since 2011.
