Coolmill finally got off the mark over timber when winning a maiden hurdle at Killarney and will find life tougher in handicaps. That's already been the case with Blossom Gate, placed on a couple of occasions since scoring at Cork in November. REALT DEN CHATHAIR has made a better fist of handicapping with a victory at Clonmel before returning from a lay-off to finish third at Roscommon. With that run under his belt, Eion Griffin's charge gets the nod in this. Southwell hurdle winner Limpopo Tom can race off a lower mark today and could prove best of the rest along with Father Jack.
