The veteran Powerstation can't be expected to relive the glory days at his advanced age while the once-useful Catch Me hasn't won over hurdles for over four years. He was behind SWEET MY LORD over fences at Tramore last month and though the winner is much better known in that sphere nowadays he has the beating of these on official figures and at least enters the fray in good shape. He can complete the double as Mossley, a more than useful hurdler on his day, has to concede 10lb thanks to a victory in October as does Gates Of Rome for his success at Wexford in March. NInetieth Minute hasn't run over timber since the Punchestown Festival in 2010.
