RORY'S BROTHER had dropped to a winnable mark when scoring over fences at Limerick last week and, as he's only 1lb higher back over hurdles, he can complete a quick double. Getoutwhenyoucan looks to be on the upgrade and handled the testing ground well at Punchestown on New Year's Eve so has to be a threat off the same mark. Shabra's Bertolini was behind in that latter event and looks held but The Bugler was running his best race to date when falling at the last at Navan last month and has to be respected. Sir Harry Cash has now had 25 career starts without winning but shouldn't be written off just yet, though he still looks a few pounds high.
