Abolitionist won over hurdles in between a couple of decent efforts over fences. He should be in the mix again while Presenting Beara has a shout on his earlier second at Fairyhouse, though he's disappointed subsequently. CNOC NA SIOGA (NAP) was surrounded by much higher rated horses than these when third in a similar contest at Tramore on his latest start over fences. He looks to have leading claims on that form and gets the nod. The Mooch has scope for improvement and Court Frontier is a chasing debutant to note.
