Too Late To Sell landed a course and distance handicap by 10 lengths in October but couldn't handle a 9lb rise and softer ground on his only subsequent start. Pals Leg made a winning debut over fences at Tramore but fell at Cork last week and gets an early chance to redeem himself. Coole Avenue has never won over fences and makes his handicap debut under a big weight but Prince Of Milan, who has won here in the past, showed signs of a revival when runner-up to the in-form Playing at Cork last week with Corskeagh Royale not too far behind. KEEP ON TRACK looks the one to be on. He gained a comfortable victory over track and trip in October then slipped up when going well on a return visit. He started favourite for a Cheltenham cross-country event last month but failed to stay the trip and faded from the last.
