Dick Dundee is an interesting recruit from point-to-points though he hasn't been seen since scoring at The Pigeons in March of last year. Sizing Gold has come up against a couple of useful winners in his two starts over timber and it was no disgrace to finish behind Don Cossack at Navan. He's an obvious threat to all with progress almost guaranteed but HARD TO SWALLOW may have his measure. He had some very strong form when trained in the UK and looked in need of the run on his first start for Jim Culloty at Cork in October. Morning Assembly made a winning bumper debut at Punchestown before beaten in a better race there while Presenting Lol showed potential when third over this trip at Clonmel in February.
