Hardly any of this huge field arrive in the best of heart so a chance is taken on DAY DREAM BOY. He hasn't run since May but was in reasonable shape from this kind of mark and has no problems with the trip. Tarquinius has to be a major threat as he is 23lb lower over hurdles than fences and was running well at this time a year ago. Hello Louie finished lame when strongly fancied at Thurles last month so if he's recovered he has to have a chance on his earlier victory at Downpatrick. Allez Vic finished in front of him in that latter event but isn't certain to confirm the form while Willie Mullins' Andiamos was beaten out of sight at Cork a week ago.
