Browns Baily hasn't really progressed over fences after a fair start though he still looks best of those with experience over fences. Winning point-to-pointer TRAFFIC ARTICLE has done reasonably well over timber scoring at Downpatrick in October but has always looked more likely to make a chaser and can make a winning debut. Model County Lass also scored between the flags and had a fair record over hurdles. She ran a rare poor race at Punchestown last time and is better than that. Sorted has shown some promise and though falling at the first on his chasing bow was well backed and is obviously thought capable of doing well in this sphere.
