This has been run five times and Noel Meade has won three of them. Paul Carberry takes the ride on SILVERHAND here and looks to have made the correct choice over stablemate Johannisberger. The former, five times a winner over hurdles, ran well in both starts over fences in May and made a winning reappearance back over hurdles at Galway a couple of weeks ago. He looks a chaser to follow this season but may get a real test here if Tofino Bay takes to the bigger obstacles. Dessie Hughes' charge has scored between the flags, in a bumper and twice over hurdles and his close second to Get Me Out Of Here in a Fairyhouse Grade 2 over timber in April signalled that he is a horse going places. He's Our Man is another very useful hurdler making his debut over fences and the youngster Up For The Match looks just the type John Kiely does so well with so he's one to keep an eye on.
