Away We Go enters the fray on a 20lb lower mark than over fences but appears better on quicker ground and pulled up on heavy going at Navan last time. Canaly reverts to hurdles on a fair mark after a cracking victory over fences at Fairyhouse but Miriam's Dream will find this much tougher than landing a Roscommon maiden though he enjoys testing conditions. Call Rog hasn't had much experience but ran very well behind the in-form Treat Yourself at Gowran and looks a threat to all but the assessor may have given SHRAPNEL another chance with a mark of 132 as he had the 141-rated Turban behind at Fairyhouse last month with the remainder well beaten. He can complete a hat-trick though Civena, who won over the C&D on heavy ground in October, should be in the shake-up again.
