A four-year-old won this last year and CAPTAIN CAROL can repeat the process. Willie Mullins' filly is by the sprinter Captain Rio but she's a half-sister to two winning hurdlers and has been found a decent opportunity to make a successful debut with all the allowances. Fill Your Hands has been consistent at this level but was disappointing at Killarney last time so Pace And Passion could prove more of a threat as she hasn't been beaten far including when just a neck behind on this track in July. Germany John is a half-brother to a winning jumper and out of a mare who won on the Flat and over timber so he's one to keep an eye on as he makes his debut.
