DEVILS BRIDE is Willie Mullins' only runner of the meeting and he can make a successful debut over fences. A dual bumper winner, he scored over hurdles at Limerick before finishing lame in a Grade 2 at Navan in November. He'll be right for this and could prove an above-average chaser. He'll need to be useful to see off Clonbanan Lad, whose five starts over the bigger obstacles have all been against very strong opposition - he'll be finding a race soon. Winning point-to-pointer and hurdler Vics Canvas is coming very late to chasing and could have been found an easier start while Call Rog and Green Thirty Two are well held by Clonbanan Lad on recent form.
