Some Tikket never looked in any danger when making all in a bumper here at the start of the month. Dermot Weld's six-year-old may take some pegging back on his hurdling debut if he jumps adequately but GROVE FIELD will be staying on when others have cried enough on this tacky ground and may just come out on top. Colm Murphy's charge doesn't do anything quickly but was doing his best work at the finish behind Follow The Sign over this trip at Fairyhouse last month. Fergiethelegend was beaten less than a length by Kashline over 2m6f at Punchestown last time but looks one-paced and has had plenty of chances. Duc D'Anjou has a bit of scope and may prove the pick of the remainder.
