Heavy ground will make this a real test but that shouldn't bother WELSH NAYBER, a moderate performer on the Flat who has done very well over timber finishing not too far behind very promising performers at Leopardstown. He can open his account here at the chief expense of Some Article, a winning bumper who made a promising debut over hurdles at Navan but was forced out at the first at Leopardstown two weeks ago. It's hard to imagine any of the others with experience troubling the principals so newcomer Run With The Tide, who is by Milan out of a winning jumper, may give them most to do and is one to note in the betting.
