Original Option has been a big disappointment since a close second to Mount Helicon in a Cork Grade 3 in October, though a repeat of that effort would be good enough for this. Galloping Gander ran well enough at Clonmel last month to be considered though he has something to find with NINTH LEGION on their run behind Domination. Conor O'Dwyer's charge was racing on fast ground for the first time that day and almost made all the running. He'll have come on for that and gets the vote though hurdling newcomer Bullock Harbour, who has always had the potential to do well over obstacles, looks a formidable rival after his bumper victories.
