ACTION MASTER, a winner on the Flat last month and three times a winning hurdler, is an interesting recruit to fences and is taken to make a winning debut against experienced rivals. Goban Saor hasn't been beaten far on his last two starts and will surely be winning one of these soon, a remark that also applies to Traffic Article, whose second to Daffern Seal at Galway is the best form of those with chasing experience. Carrleoni showed his first sign of form over fences at Limerick but Thepartysover has looked very one-paced over the bigger obstacles so far.
