Jumping will be the name of the game here as some of the principals have yet to get their act together over fences. Potential punters will need to ignore the last run of JOHANNISBERGER as there was something amiss when he pulled up at Punchestown. He's been given a few weeks to get over his ailment and his earlier form, especially when beaten just a length by Tofino Bay, entitles him to the vote. Toostrong finished a well beaten third in that Punchestown event but that should have brought him on and has to be on the short-list. Realt Mor has failed to finish twice in five starts over fences and has yet to fulfil his potential but Shinrock Paddy looks a big threat. He was sent back over hurdles after failing to score in seven starts over fences but has some strong form to his credit and looks capable of better.
