Pairc Na Leasa scored between the flags in Ireland and had some strong form over hurdles there though isn't as well handicapped in the UK. WILLIE HALL can take this as he has done better since front-running tactics were employed and still looks reasonably treated despie a 6lb rise for his Sedgefield victory. Some Lad is still a maiden after 17 career starts and is better handicapped over fences but Tweedo Paradiso won a handicap at Carlisle in October and is only 1lb higher, though he hasn't reached that level of form in subsequent races. County Cavan-based Shane Donohoe had a winner at Wolverhampton on Monday so Seancill Oir should be respected. She's yet to win a race and has a big weight but leading amateur Nico de Boinville wouldn't be making the trip here without good reason.
