TEPALO has been hampered by a penalty for his lone bumper success but was conceding 15lb to Mic Milano when narrowly beaten at Ballinrobe last month. He deserves to get his head in front and this looks his chance. The Breathalyser has shown a bit of form over hurdles and fences but has no scope and Katys Girl should do better. She's had 22 starts and has become very disappointing after a bright start that saw her finish runner-up to Zaidpour at Punchestown. There were signs of better to come at Kilbeggan last time and she looks the main threat. Algies Pet looked an improver when scoring between the flags in April.
