Last Instalment produced a cracking effort at Thurles on Thursday after a very long absence and another Philip Fenton stable star, Dunguib, can probably do the same though he's not been out since the 2011 Champion Hurdle. Mourad probably needs further and it's a surprise to see his stablemate Upsie over this trip as she didn't appear to last out 2m4f at Leopardstown after looking the likely winner for much of the race. Jennies Jewel finished just in front of her that day but could need more of a stamina test than she'll get here. Since finishing runner-up to The New One at Cheltenham, RULE THE WORLD has been found wanting in Grade 1 company. This looks more his level and he can return to winning ways. His stablemate Rathlin has been in tremendous form over fences and won't go down without a fight in receipt of 9lb.
