All eyes will be on BOSTON BOB, who won the Grade 1 novice hurdle on this card a year ago before scoring at Leopardstown in January and finishing runner-up to Brindisi Breeze in the Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham. He's entered in two Grade 1's at Leopardstown over Christmas and it will be a massive shock if he's beaten on his chasing bow. You Must Know Me is another potentially useful chaser and though his form is nowhere near that of the selection he's the type to win races this season and looks the logical danger. Knockgraffon King unseated his rider on his debut over fences but jumped round safely at Fairyhouse and can prove next best.
