Four-year-olds have a tremendous record in this and Labeille is an intriguing entry for Eddie Harty as she is a multiple winner over hurdles and fences in France and makes her debut in this very tough handicap. The other youngster in the line-up, Scottish Boogie, has won four times on the Flat and has shown enough over timber to suggest he's worth a close look though he's held by Strain Of Fame and Some Present on their run over the trip at Punchestown last month. The former has since run poorly at Navan but that was over a trip much too far and he can be forgiven. Baby Whizz has gone up 8lb for his comfortable Wexford success but is improving enough to take a hand while the lightly-raced Reizovic makes his handicap debut from a fair mark but all logic here points to LASTOFTHELEADERS being remarkably well handicapped over hurdles as he is currently rated 140 over fences after his recent success at Fairyhouse and can race from a massive 30lb lower here.
