With weight and fitness advantages, ROSS LIMESTONE is given the nod over He'Llberemembered. Brought down on the Flat at Sligo earlier this month, the seven-year-old had run well in a bumper at Ballinrobe earlier and this won't take much winning. He'Llberemembered hasn't run since runner-up to Outlaw Kid in a maiden hurdle at Thurles in October but looked to be going along the right lines with an earlier victory in a Navan bumper. Belville View showed real promise in bumpers and hasn't run badly in two starts over timber while Celtic Wish would have an outstanding chance if reproducing his close third to Leggy Lad at Naas in March.
