CLOSE REVIEW has only won once in 16 starts over fences and connections won't be happy with a 2lb rise for finishing runner-up to Shantalla at Ballinrobe but that was his third good run in succession and he can gain his reward here. Carmels Boy won a hunter chase at Down Royal in May and has done well in two subsequent handicaps so there could be more to come and though Lord Alfie hasn't run since his victory at Fairyhouse in April that was only his fifth start over regulation fences and he could be on a lenient mark. Bangonform has done better over hurdles than fences in his recent races, a remark that also applies to Happy New Year, who completed a hat-trick over timber around this time a year ago.
