Successful point-to-pointer Shantalla has yet to score over regulation fences but should be winning this campaign after a very good run over hurdles last time. Captain Luke is another yet to win over fences but he's run well at a decent level and was still there when falling at Galway last time. Keep On Track is a useful point-to-pointer and hunter though he looks a bit high in the weights so this can go to EMPEROR CONCERTO. A winner over fences for Lucy Wadham, he was having his first start for Gordon Elliott when just touched off by Mount Sion on fast ground at Downpatrick and today's conditions will be more suitable.
