Blow The Doors Off landed a 2m2f Sligo bumper in May and has looked in need of a longer trip on both starts over hurdles. Chicago won three times on the Flat for Aidan O'Brien and is another who would probably appreciate going further. Easter Hunt, who was very unlucky on his only start between the flags, started favourite for his hurdling debut at Cork but was caught on the line by Art Of Payroll. There's more to come from him and he should be in the shake-up but EQUITY SWAP, who won two of his last four starts on the Flat for Tommy Stack, looks to have been found a decent opportunity to make a successful start over hurdles.
