NATIVE WOLF has yet to make the frame but hasn't been disgraced lately. He had Killarney third Serra Nova behind at Navan in September and it would be no surprise to see him in the thick of the action in this modest heat. There are also possibilities about For Dylan back over timber and Fitzgutentyte was sent off favourite over fences at Downpatrick last month and has the past form to figure. Akadyr and Satwa King return from a break but are others with decent claims but a bigger danger could be Templar Knight. Gordon Elliott's charge has some fair form last year and should be approaching peak fitness now after a couple of recent starts.
