OUTLAWED TUNES was a very impressive winner between the flags in April of last year and was made favourite on his reappearance after a long break at Punchestown a few days ago. He attempted to make all that day and didn't have much left when passed but that will have done him good and he can gain his first success under Rules. Behemoth and Racing Pulse have both won their only starts in point-to-points and are with yards who do well with similar types while San Pietro made a very encouraging debut at the Festival here in August and will have come on enough to get involved. Flags Pass and Masterofdeception look best of the remainder.
