GO PADDY GO had been showing very solid form before beating the in-form Famous Ballerina at Clonmel where the minimum trip and yielding ground suited. He's up 6lb but will take some beating. Firethorn was behind Famous Ballerina at Thurles and has yet to hit the jackpot but Zekarya could be a different proposition. He's only run once over the minimum trip in 13 starts which includes point-to-points and he'll need to do better than his latest run at Limerick but that will have blown the cobwebs away and he looks a threat. De Glebe Star ran his best race so far over hurdles here last time though that was over 2m7f and this looks too short. Court Frontier makes his handicap debut but has yet to transfer his bumper form to the obstacles.
