THUNDER AND ROSES landed a Naas bumper last year and has been unfortunate not to gain his first success over hurdles. He can put matters right here with a stiff test of stamina assured on the heavy going though he's closely matched with The Job Is Right, who has a similar profile and will also be suited by the conditions. Troll D'Oudairies looks a real staying type and Ruby Walsh will ensure he gets a thorough test of stamina which will also suit Chute Hall, a winning point-to-pointer who has been unable to find a finishing burst in three bumpers runs.
