PUMBAA, who won a bumper here at the Christmas fixture, was unsuited by the slow gallop at Gowran the following month and looks a promising type for hurdling. He's handed the vote over Band Of Blood, a winner at Thurles but slightly disappointing over an extra 3f here last time. Dawerann wasn't beaten far in a Listed contest a month ago and looks best of those with experience over timber while one to note is the Roscommon bumper winner Gallant Tipp, who looks a really nice type for jumping. Roman General may prove best of the remainder.
