After victories in a point-to-point and a Navan bumper, MILSEAN was just outstayed by No More Heroes at Naas with the remainder well beaten. He faces some decent types here but gets the vote to return to winning ways. Back To Bracka showed the benefit of his opening run by scoring on heavy ground at Galway in October. He has an absence to overcome in this better race but Montys Meadow looked a nice prospect at Cork and chased home a decent sort in Black Hercules at Gowran when Vicangelome was behind. Victoria Hill followed his shock Thurles victory by taking on two smart performers at Naas and couldn't cope.
