Stamina is the key to TOOREEN, who has completed a Clonmel double over three miles in testing conditions. This slightly shorter trip is no concern and providing the ground remains heavy she'll take some beating. Backinthere was in good form at this time a year ago and has been chasing this campaign. He finished a good third in a Grade 2 here last month and looks one for the short-list. Winning point-to-pointer Corporate Box has shown enough in three maiden hurdles to suggest she could be well in for her handicap debut while Mini Vic scored at Tramore on New Year's Day then ran over fences before reverting to hurdles with an excellent run behind Another Challenge at Thurles. Shuilamach begins her handicap career after a very good effort in a Cork maiden where she was staying on very strongly over that 2m4f trip.
