Ballylibert won a point-to-point last month before a poor run over fences and doesn't look well handicapped over timber. HANG ON GROOVY has been called a few names in the past but did everything right at Listowel where she gained a very easy victory. A 10lb rise makes life more difficult though she's capable of following-up in that kind of mood. Runner-up Evesham Star should get closer under the revised terms and Feisty Lass is one to keep an eye on as she makes her debut for Gordon Elliott.
